Abstract:As the biomechanical mechanisms of orbital wall fractures are still under research, three different fracture mechanisms were tested in a finite element based investigation. In contrast to earlier studies, a finer skeletal model and a transient dynamic simulation were used to test pure hydraulic, pure buckling and a mixed force transmission. Results showed that each set-up led to different orbital fracture patterns, which correlate well with clinical findings. Therefore the conclusion is that different mechanis…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
