Bone: The Architecture of Bone and How it is Influenced by External Loading
Everyone will agree that one of the principal influences on whether a prosthetic fixation succeeds or not is the situation at the interface. The interface will react in many ways according to its specific characteristics. However, the interface is also the perimeter of the bone architecture whose position is determined by another set of influences which result from its role as a bearer of functional loads. The data presented relate to the functional determinants of bone architecture.
