Super-osteons (remodeling clusters) in the cortex of the femoral shaft: influence of age and gender.
Previous studies of cortical remodeling in the fractured femoral neck indicated that the merging of spatially clustered remodeling osteons could result in the formation of deleteriously large cavities associated with femoral neck fracture. This study aimed to identify whether remodeling osteons in the femoral shaft were also clustered and to assess the influence of age and gender. Microradiographic images of femoral mid-shaft cross-sections from 66 subjects over 21 years of age were analyzed ...Expand abstract
