Publication: Journal of OrthopaedicTrauma Date: February 2013 Authors: Paller DJ, Frenzen SW, Bartlett CS 3rd, Beardsley CL, Beynnon BD Link to Full Text Abstract OBJECTIVES: This study developed a new 6 degree-of-freedom, unconstrained biomechanical model that replicated the in vivo loading environment of femoral fractures. The objective of this study was to determine whether various [...]
