Introduction: Vascularised fibula autograft combined with a massive bone allograft (Capanna 2007) is used in skeletal reconstructions in children. If vascularisation is successful a clear remodelling of the reconstruction can be observed. This study aims to define a protocol to characterise bone’s structural evolution in skeletal reconstructions through a computer-aided analysis, and attempts a biomechanical interpretation of the observed phenomena through a multiscale mo...

Introduction: The first clinical applications of FE-strength estimates to classify osteoporotic fractures showed inhomogeneous results. We developed a FE model that correlated well with femur strength in-vitro (R2=0.9, 14 femurs). This work aims to verify if our model can classify osteoporotic fractures in three case-control studies: a retrospective and a prospective study on proximal femur fracture, and a retrospective study on prevalent ...
