FEA study into ankle kinematics and traumatic injury to the talar dome

The HBI has been conducting research into talar dome morphology for the past several years. We have demonstrated links between tibial pilon fractures and talar dome injuries not previously identified in the literature. Current literature has reported only 3 cases of injury to the talar dome during a tibial pilon fracture.However, over the last 10 years at the RBWH, we have identified 58 cases. These injuries have been digitally mapped and combined to observe common fracture patterns. With extensive access …

Predicting the interaction of bone remodelling units through finite element analysis

Bone is living tissue and, like all living tissue, it is constantly being repaired and replaced. Each year, this occurs to approximately 10% of human bone.In the cortical bone, bone remodelling is driven by the bone remodelling unit (BMU). The BMU is formed by two fundamental cells, osteoclast and osteoblasts. Osteoclasts resorb bone in front of the BMU, leaving a cavity, while the osteoblasts lay down new bone. Through these mechanics the BMU travels along the length of the bone.As …
