Bone Fracture Healing

Pp. 76-78 (3)

The bone remodeling sequence is composed of three consecutive phases: resorption, reversal, and formation. The utilization of numerical models to simulate the fracture healing process may prove to be advantageous in determining the ideal mechanical-based reconstruction or treatment after an illness or accident.
