A hypothetical method of bone remodelling and modeling under electromagnetic loads

Chuanyong, Qu; Qin, Qing Hua; Kang, Yi Lan

Description

A hypothetical regulation mechanism for bone modeling and remodeling under electromagnetic field is proposed. In this hypothesis, the bone modeling and remodeling mechanism is described as follows: the circular loads that we bear during ordinary daily activities generate micro-damage in cortical bone and these micro-cracks are removed by osteoclasts. Then growth factors, which are in latent forms in osteocytes, are activated by osteoclasts and released into bone fluid. These growth factors...[Show more]
