Ordered Fibril Arrays in Osteons Promote the Multidirectional Nanodeflection of Cracks: AFM Imaging.

ACS Biomater Sci Eng 2021 06 20;7(6):2372-2382. Epub 2021 May 20.

School of Materials Science and Engineering, South China University of Technology, Guangzhou 510641, Guangdong, P. R. China.

The high fracture resistance of cortical bone is not completely understood across its complex hierarchical structure, especially on micro- and nanolevels. Here, a novel bending test combined with atomic force microscopy (AFM) is utilized to assess the micro-/nanoscale failure behavior of cortical bone under the external load. Unlike the smoother crack path in the transverse direction, the multilevel composite material model endows the longitudinal direction to show multilevel Y-shaped cracks with more failure interfaces for enhancing the fracture resistance.

Acetabular Stress Fracture in a Healthy Male Amateur Endurance Runner. A Case Report.

J Orthop Case Rep 2020 May-Jun;10(3):85-87

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, San Fernando General Hospital, Independence Ave, San Fernando, Trinidad, West Indies.

Introduction: Stress fractures are overuse injuries resulting from repetitive submaximal loading of a bone. Acetabular stress fractures while highly uncommon can occur in those undergoing intense endurance training as is the case with military recruits. Diagnosis of this injury can be dubious at times, with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) being the most sensitive diagnostic tool considering the lower sensitivity of plain film radiography.

Podosome-Driven Defect Development in Lamellar Bone under the Conditions of Senile Osteoporosis Observed at the Nanometer Scale.

ACS Biomater Sci Eng 2021 06 3;7(6):2255-2267. Epub 2021 May 3.

Max-Planck-Institut für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe, Nöthnitzer Str. 40, 01187 Dresden, Germany.

The degradation mechanism of human trabecular bone harvested from the central part of the femoral head of a patient with a fragility fracture of the femoral neck under conditions of senile osteoporosis was investigated by high-resolution electron microscopy. As evidenced by light microscopy, there is a disturbance of bone metabolism leading to severe and irreparable damages to the bone structure. These defects are evoked by osteoclasts and thus podosome activity. Read More

Biomed Res Int 2021 10;2021:8872514. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Department of Orthopaedics, Chinese PLA General Hospital, No. 28 Fuxing Road, Beijing 100853, China.

Objective: In this study, the mechanical properties of the new spinal fixation system (NSFS) in the treatment of thoracolumbar fractures were evaluated by the finite element analysis method, so as to provide a mechanical theoretical basis for the later biomechanical experiments and clinical experiments.
