The present study introduces in silico analysis of osteoporotic lumbar vertebrae L1 due to dynamic compressive load.Objective: To define the reduction of load carrying capacity caused by various grades of osteoporosis.Materials and methods: The three-dimensional inhomogeneous continuum problem was formulated for simulation purposes. The L1 vertebra model consists of cortical shell, trabecular network and poste...
