Title:
Does femoral strain distribution coincide with the occurrence of cervical versus trochanteric hip fractures? An experimental finite element study. 
Abstract:
The objective of this experimental finite element (FE) study is to test the hypothesis that strain distributions coincide with the occurrence of cervical versus trochanteric hip fractures during loading conditions simulating a sideways fall, and that the cervical versus trochanteric principal strain ratio predicts different fracture patterns. Cadaver femora (female, 83 +/- 9 years) were CT scanned and mechanically tested simulating a fall. Thirteen cervical and 13 trochanteric fracture cases wer...    »
