BACKGROUND: Treatment for fractures of the tibial plateau is in most cases carried out by stable fixation in order to allow early mobilization. Minimally invasive technologies such as tibioplasty or stabilization by locking plate, bone augmentation and cement filling (CF) have recently been used to treat this type of fracture. The aim of this paper was to determine the mechanical behavior of the tibial plateau by numerically modeling and by quantifying the mechanical effects on the tibia mechanical properties from injury healing...

Finite element models in conjunction with adequate constitutive relations are pivotal in several physiological and medical applications related to both native and engineered tissues, allowing to predict the tissue response under various loading states. In order to get reliable results, however, the validation of the constitutive models is crucial. Therefore, the main purpose of this work is to provide an experimental-computational approach to the biomechanical investigation of soft tissues such as the dermis...

The treatment of coronary bifurcations is challenging for interventional cardiologists. The Tryton stent (Tryton Medical, Inc., USA) is one of the few devices specifically designed for coronary bifurcations that underwent large clinical trials. Although the manufacturer provides specific recommendations to position the stent in the bifurcation side branch (SB) according to four radio-opaque markers under angiographic guidance, wrong device positioning may accidentally occur. In this study, the virtual bench testing approach was used to investigate the impact of wrong positioning of the Tryton stent in coronary bifurcations in terms of geometrical and biomechanical criteria...

The fundamental ultrasonic guided modes are consistently observed in long bones ex vivo and in vivo. However, the responses of ultrasonic guided waves to the changes of cortical thickness, cortical elastic parameters, and thickness of the overlying soft tissues are not comprehensively understood. This paper systematically presents a sensitivity analysis of leaky Lamb modes to the geometry and material characteristics of layered bone model by means of semi-analytical finite element modeling. The stratified bone model is consisted of a transversely isotropic cortex with an overlying soft tissue and underlying marrow...

Sedimentation velocity experiments performed in the analytical ultracentrifuge are modeled using finite-element solutions of the Lamm equation. During modeling, three fundamental parameters are optimized: the sedimentation coefficients, the diffusion coefficients, and the partial concentrations of all solutes present in a mixture. A general modeling approach consists of fitting the partial concentrations of solutes defined in a two-dimensional grid of sedimentation and diffusion coefficient combinations that cover the range of possible solutes for a given mixture...

A micrometer-scale elastic shell immersed in a nematic liquid crystal may be deformed by the host if the cost of deformation is comparable to the cost of elastic deformation of the nematic. Moreover, such inclusions interact and form chains due to quadrupolar distortions induced in the host. A continuum theory model using finite elements is developed for this system, using mesh regularization and dynamic refinement to ensure quality of the numerical representation even for large deformations. From this model, we determine the influence of the shell elasticity, nematic elasticity, and anchoring condition on the shape of the shell and hence extract parameter values from an experimental realization...

The use of larger prosthetic femoral heads in total hip arthroplasty (THA) has increased considerably in recent years in response to the need to improve joint stability and reduce risk of dislocation. However, data suggests larger femoral heads are associated with higher joint failure rates. For cemented implants, ensuring the continued integrity of the cement mantle is key to long term fixation. This paper describes an investigation into the effect of variation in femoral head size on stresses in the acetabular cement mantle and pelvic bone...

The present work proposes a simple, novel fixation concept for short stem hip endoprostheses, which preserves the pre-surgery force flow through femoral bone to an unprecedented extent. It is demonstrated by finite element analyses that a standard implant model endowed with minor geometrical changes can overcome bone loading reduction and can achieve almost physiological conditions. The numerical results underpin that the key aspect of the novel, so-called "collar cortex compression concept CO4 " is the direct, almost full load transmission from the implant collar to the resected femur cortex, which implies that the implant stem must be smooth and therefore interacts mainly by normal contact with the surrounding bone...

There is currently a knowledge gap in scientific literature concerning the strain rate dependent properties of trabecular bone at intermediate strain rates. Meanwhile, strain rates between 10 and 200/s have been observed in previous dynamic finite element models of the proximal femur loaded at realistic sideways fall speeds. This study aimed to quantify the effect of strain rate (ε̇) on modulus of elasticity (E), ultimate stress (σu ), failure energy (Uf ), and minimum stress (σm ) of trabecular bone in order to improve the biofidelity of material properties used in dynamic simulations of sideways fall loading on the hip...

Scoliosis is a complex spinal three-dimensional malformation with complicated pathogenesis, often associated with complications as thoracic deformity and shoulder imbalance. Because the acquisition of specimen or animal models are difficult, the biomechanical study of scoliosis is limited. In recent years, along with the development of the computer technology, software and image, the technology of establishing a finite element model of human spine is maturing and it has been providing strong support for the research of pathogenesis of scoliosis, the design and application of brace, and the selection of surgical methods...

A novel fiber Bragg grating (FBG)-based strain sensor with a high-sensitivity is presented in this paper. The proposed FBG-based strain sensor enhances sensitivity by pasting the FBG on a substrate with a lever structure. This typical mechanical configuration mechanically amplifies the strain of the FBG to enhance overall sensitivity. As this mechanical configuration has a high stiffness, the proposed sensor can achieve a high resonant frequency and a wide dynamic working range. The sensing principle is presented, and the corresponding theoretical model is derived and validated...

PURPOSE: A direct method of imaging neural activity was simulated to determine typical signal sizes. METHODS: An active bidomain finite-element model was used to estimate approximate perturbations in MR phase data as a result of neural tissue activity, and when an external MR electrical impedance tomography imaging current was added to the region containing neural current sources. RESULTS: Modeling-predicted, activity-related conductivity changes should produce measurable differential phase signals in practical MR electrical impedance tomography experiments conducted at moderate resolution at noise levels typical of high field systems...

Bone daggers were once widespread in New Guinea. Their purpose was both symbolic and utilitarian; they functioned as objects of artistic expression with the primary function of stabbing and killing people at close quarters. Most daggers were shaped from the tibiotarsus of cassowaries, but daggers shaped from the femora of respected men carried greater social prestige. The greater cross-sectional curvature of human bone daggers indicates superior strength, but the material properties of cassowary bone are unknown...

Researches of osteonal fluid seepage behavior based on the microstructure of bone tissue have become a hot point. The aim of the present research work is to assess the effect of blood pressure oscillation on the osteonal interstitial fluid seepage behavior. We established finite element osteon models for a hollow and that considering blood pressure oscillation, respectively, with COMSOL Multiphysics software in order to compare their fluid flow behavior under the axial loading...
