Dunlop, DG and Brewster, NT and Madabhushi, SP and Usmani, AS and Pankaj, P and Howie, CR (2003) Techniques to improve the shear strength of impacted bone graft: the effect of particle size and washing of the graft. J Bone Joint Surg Am, 85-A. pp. 639-646. ISSN 0021-9355Full text not available from this repository.
When fresh morselized graft is compacted, as in impaction bone-grafting for revision hip surgery, fat and marrow fluid is either exuded or trapped in the voids between particles. We hypothesized that the presence of incompressible fluid damps and resists compressive forces during impaction and prevents the graft particles from moving into a closer formation, thus reducing the graft strength. In addition, viscous fluid such as fat may act as an interparticle lubricant, thus reducing the interlocking of the particles.
