A Finite Element Approach to Predict the Post-treatment Evolution of an Orthopedically Treated Vertebral Body Fracture

Stelian Anghel, Tiberiu Bățagă , and Constantin Dogariu
Abstract—Our research employs FEM to simulate the evolution of an orthopedically treated vertebral fracture and compares the result against the real healing process observed through CT and X-ray investigations. Applying FEM to the simulation of vertebral fracture healing is an original endeavor in studying the evolution of the fracture stability and represents a theoretical pretest for applying the FEM in the prediction of fracture healing progress.

Index Terms—lumbar fracture, finite element method (fem), computer tomography (CT).
