Non-enzymatic glycation weakens trabecular bone and may influence changes in bone quality

Proceedings of the 2010 IEEE 36th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (NEBEC), 2010

Non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) is associated with bone fragility. Microarchitecture and microdamage are also shown to influence bone's mechanical properties, but it is unknown if NEG affects their alterations. Here, we show that NEG deteriorates bone's mechanical properties and is also correlated with these two bone quality components.

  • Material properties of sheep trabecular bone determined by nanomechanical testing

    How the material properties of trabecular bone relate to its bulk mechanical behavior is not well understood. Multiple trabeculae in four cubic samples harvested from the distal femora of sheep were evaluated using a nanoindentation testing device. The average modulus and hardness was 20.2/spl plusmn/4.0 GPa and 1.1/spl plusmn/0.4 GPa, respectively. These values were consistent across surface region, specimen, and feature, thereby exhibiting a very homogenous quality at this level. The source of the highly anisotropic trabecular continuum, therefore, does not directly derive from its material properties.

  • Application of wavelet analysis to ultrasonic characterization of bone

    Investigates the application of time-frequency techniques to ultrasonic signals transmitted through bone to noninvasively determine bone density and strength. Ultrasonic transmission measurements are carried out on 3 samples of human vertebral trabecular bone, using a 1 MHz transducer pair. The data is processed using the wavelet transform according to Mallat's (1989) pyramid algorithm. The wavelet representation thus obtained is then cross-correlated with a wavelet representation of a reference signal to obtain the time- frequency representation associated with a particular bone sample. Results indicate that time-frequency methods may serve to accurately discriminate bone in various biophysical states. Further studies are under way to determine the best set of features associated with the time-frequency representation as well as the optimal means for processing the feature set, including neural networks.<<ETX>>

  • 3-D modeling and finite element analysis of the tibia

    A 3-D solid model of the human tibia and the fibula was constructed using magnetic resonance imaging and solid modeling software. A finite element analysis of the tibia was conducted to evaluate stresses developed in the tibia under static loads and to study the effect of varying material properties on these stresses. Loading conditions and material properties used were taken from literature. Two finite element models were taken into consideration. A model of the tibial post up to a length of 130 mm was studied to compare results to previous literature and a model of the whole tibia under similar loading conditions was analyzed. Maximum stresses developed for cancellous bone were within ultimate stress values and a tendency of the cancellous bone to distribute stresses to regions of compact or cortical bone was observed.<<ETX>>

  • Frequency dependence of backscatter from thin, oblique, finite-length cylinders measured with a focused transducer - with applications in cancellous bone

    A model is presented for the echo from a thin, oblique, finite-length cylinder. The echo is calculated from the line integral of the transducer directivity pattern along the cylinder axis. The model was validated with broadband pulse-echo measurements from 1) a perpendicular (to the ultrasound beam) nylon wire as a function of lateral displacement from the beam center, 2) a tilted nylon wire as a function of the angle of inclination relative to the ultrasound beam, and 3) a quasi-parallel-nylon-wire phantom, which mimicked the scattering properties of cancellous bone. The transducer directivity pattern (as a function of position and frequency) was measured with a membrane hydrophone. The model predicts an approximately cubic frequency dependence of backscatter coefficient from the phantom, as has been observed experimentally in cancellous bone. The model also predicts the relationship between cylinder length and the exponent of a power law fit to backscatter coefficient vs. frequency, which is 4 for very short (compared to a wavelength) cylinders and asymptotically approaches 3 for very long cylinders.

  • Quantification of trabecular bone structure from three-dimensional /spl mu/MR images

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has recently been applied to the study of osteoporosis. Accurate acquisition techniques and image analysis protocols for the determination of trabecular bone structure are yet to be defined. Two different approaches for three-dimensional acquisition and reconstruction are exploited to derive the structural parameters of trabecular bone explants. In particular, MR microscopy (/spl mu/MRI) is used to obtain conventional (FT) and projection reconstruction (PR) spin-echo images (41/spl times/41/spl times/41 /spl mu/m/sup 3//voxel). Segmentation of the high-resolution images into bone and bone marrow is obtained by using a suitable threshold. The main bone structural parameters are then derived by using a 3D version of the directed secant algorithm applied to a series of contiguous sections. The efficiency of the two methods in the assessment of trabecular bone architecture is discussed.

  • A numerical study on bone adaptation around uncemented press-fit acetabular components

    Implant-induced bone remodeling has been identified as a potential reason behind aseptic loosening of uncemented acetabular cups. Using three- dimensional Finite Element models of intact and implanted pelvis, in combination with bone remodeling algorithm, the present study aims at gaining an insight into the evolutionary bone adaptation around a press-fit uncemented acetabular component. Eight static load cases of normal walking cycle, modeled by 21 muscle forces and hip joint reaction force, were considered in the present study in order to investigate deviation in load transfer due to implantation and peri-acetabular bone adaptation. Based on the results of the present study, a press-fit acetabular component was found to increase load transfer through acetabular cortex. Consequently, predominant bone apposition was observed within the acetabular peripheral cancellous bone. However, a reduction in the density of cancellous bone near the acetabular pole was also observed.

  • The minimal entropy prior for simultaneous reconstruction and segmentation of in vivo microct trabecular bone images

    We present the minimal entropy prior for the iterative reconstruction of muCT projection data using the maximum a posteriori (MAP) framework. The minimal entropy prior restricts the number of intensity values in the reconstruction without requiring a priori information about the number of image tissues or tissue intensity estimates. We utilise the presented prior in the MAP framework to simultaneously reconstruct and segment trabecular bone from low quality muCT images. The MAP approach allows the straightforward incorporation of the in vivo scanner point spread function, while the entropy prior yields a segmentation that obeys to projection data.

  • The influence of mechanical strain magnitude on bone adaptation to porous-coated implants

    In order to investigate the hypothesis that trabecular bone tissue adapts its structure according to its mechanical strain magnitude, voxel-based FEA was used to model the interface mechanics of a hydraulically-loaded implant experiment. Although the applied loads produced a wide range of tissue strain levels, the loads were insufficient for preventing the long-term bone atrophy observed in unloaded bones. These results suggest that bone remodeling processes are influenced by other factors besides strain magnitude.

  • Simulation of bone aging and virtual reality visualization of cancellous bone structure

    This paper describes a bone modeling effort and virtual reality visualization aimed towards characterizing and predicting human vertebral compression fractures with emphasis on quantifying osteoporosis and aging. A 3D model of the trabecular bone structure is constructed from a stack of muCT images of a human vertebra. Parameters for quantifying the bone are calculated for this structure from the 3D model and validated by comparing the results with values calculated from standard stereological methods. The resulting structure is then aged using biologically based computational algorithms. These structures are then visualized in a virtual reality environment enabling detailed examination of the regional microstructures to assess the potential for compression fracture formation.
