Analysis of Elastic Energy during the Cutting of Bone.

Ginsberg, Robert.

Abstract: A fixture was designed and manufactured that allowed for the measurement of energy absorbed during single tooth cutting of bovine bone. This fixture was utilized to evaluate the significance of the elastic compression of bone during cutting at depths of cut representative of sagittal or reciprocating bone sawing, used in orthopedic surgery. Experiments were completed recording position a... read more
