AbstractBackground. Conventional testing method for evaluation of rat hip failure force is based on an axial compression approach. However, as the most osteoporotic hip fractures are a result of a lateral fall, it is necessary to establish mechanical testing methods more close to clinical conditions. This study was therefore designed to evaluate the differences in hip mechanical failure force to be tested between 'axial compression' and 'lateral fall configuration' in a rat proximal femur model.
