Example text

Describe the phases of soft tissue healing. The acute inflammatory phase begins immediately after injury and lasts 24 to 48 hours, although some aspects may continue for up to 3 weeks. The proliferative phase may begin early in the inflammatory phase but is thought to be most extensive approximately 21 days after injury. The matrix formation/remodeling phase begins 3 weeks after injury and may last for up to 2 years, although in many cases the majority of remodeling has occurred by 2 months. Because the time frames for these three phases overlap considerably, the accepted delineations should be used as general guidelines only.

What happens to the strength of an intramedullary rod when its diameter is increased? Strength increases as the rod size increases by an order of the third power. 44. What are the effects of increasing thickness and width of a fixation plate? • Stability is determined by raising the thickness to the third power and the width to the first power. • Strength is determined by raising the thickness to the second power and the width to the first power. 45. , missing screw or following removal of plate) affect its strength?

32. Are tissue responses to a submaximal stress time dependent? Yes; tissue responses do change with time of application. Even if the amount of load is in the elastic range, but it is applied for a longer time, it will continue to cause a deformation. This type of deformation is reversible and it is called creep. Creep is caused by the exudation of interstitial fluid. The fluid exits most rapidly at first and diminishes gradually over time. Human cartilage takes 4 to 16 hours to reach creep equilibrium, and this is why humans become slightly shorter as the day passes.
