In this experimental study, the goal was to test the sufficiency of actual fixation plates in zygomatic complex fractures and the efficiency of a modified plate at the zygomaticofrontal suture in a suitable model, which was designed for biomechanical study. To address this issue, a zygomatic fracture model produced by using a cadaveric cranium was simulated and the fractures were fixed by the actual and modified fixation materials. The force simulating masseter muscle pull was applied with the Lloyd materia...
Biomechanical Investigation of Disturbed Hemodynamics-Induced Tissue Degeneration in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Using Computational and Experimental Techniques
Salman, Huseyin Enes; Ramazanlı, Burcu; Yavuz, Mehmet Metin; Yalcin, Huseyin Cagatay (2019-05-31)
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the dilatation of the aorta beyond 50% of the normal vessel diameter. It is reported that 4-8% of men and 0.5-1% of women above 50 years of age bear an AAA and it accounts for similar to 15,000 deaths per year in the United States alone. If left untreated, AAA might gradually expand until rupture; the most catastrophic complication of the aneurysmal disease that is accompanied by a striking overall mortality of 80%. The precise mechanisms leading to AAA rupture remains unc...
Biomechanical Evaluation of an Injectable Alginate / Dicalcium Phosphate Cement Composites for Bone Tissue Engineering

Biocompatible dicalcium phosphate (DCP) cements are widely used as bone repair materials. In this study, we aimed to investigate the impact of different amounts of sodium alginate (SA) on the microstructural, mechanical, and biological properties of DCP cements. Beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) was prepared using a microwave-assisted wet precipitation system. Lattice parameters of the obtained particles determined from X-ray diffraction (XRD), were in good match with a standard phase of β-TCP. Scanning ele...
Biomechanical analysis of the effects of single high-dose vitamin D-3 on fracture healing in a healthy rabbit model
Omeroglu, H; Ates, Y; Akkus, O; Korkusuz, Feza; Bicimoglu, A; Akkas, N (1997-05-01)
In a previous ultrastructural study, the benefit of a single high dose of vitamin D-3 On fracture healing in a healthy animal model was demonstrated. This study examined the biomechanical consequences of applying a single high dose of vitamin D-3 in a healthy rabbit model subsequent to femoral fracture. The fracture load, the values of energy absorbed until fracture and the flexural rigidity values of the vitamin D group were significantly higher than the corresponding ones of the control group in the case ...
