Spatial clustering of remodeling osteons in the femoral neck cortex: a cause of weakness in hip fracture?

Abstract:

Intracapsular femoral neck fractures are associated with decreased cortical width and increased proportions of Haversian canals with diameters greater than the normal mean plus 3 SD (i.e., >385 microm). Such canals might be formed if closely associated resorbing osteons merge; a cortical event analogous with the loss of cancellous connectivity. To test this, we investigated the pattern of osteon distribution in the aging femoral neck to determine if remodeling osteons were distributed in a...
