Abstract

Mechanical influence on secondary fracture healing remains an incompletely understood phenomenon. This is of special importance in biological osteosynthesis, where stability is sacrificed for the sake of an optimal biological fracture environment. Under condition of relative stability, a wide range of biomechanical conditions can be achieved. Mechanobiology, which studies mechanical influences on biological systems has become a large, interdisciplinary field. The aim of this article is to present a comprehensive synthesis of the literature for the practicing clinician, with insights relevant to their practice of fracture care.
