• femur
  • This diagram of a femur (thighbone) shows the location of the growth plates at both ends of the bone. (aaos.org)
  • Patients who have a tracking problem in the patellofemoral joint - the patella does not stay in the groove on the femur - are vulnerable to a spectrum of conditions. (hss.edu)
  • stress
  • Harris lines form before adulthood, when bone growth is temporarily halted or slowed down due to some sort of stress (either disease or malnutrition). (wikipedia.org)
  • cracks
  • As the continental crust stretched, the near surface rocks fractured along steeply dipping cracks parallel to the rift known as faults. (wikipedia.org)
  • Formation of cracks and intermetallic growth in die attachments may lead to formation of voids and delamination, impairing heat transfer from the chip die to the substrate and heatsink and causing a thermal failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • result
  • Occasionally, a twisting or hyperextension force to the knee may result in a tibial spine fracture. (drhill.com)
  • This incipient rifting formed as a result of the Pacific Plate sliding northward along the Queen Charlotte Fault, on its way to the Aleutian Trench. (wikipedia.org)
  • Volcanic activity at Maitland Volcano was consistent with extensional stresses across the northern Canadian Cordillera that began around 10 million years ago as a result of new plate motions between the Pacific and North American plates. (wikipedia.org)
  • screws
  • Internal fixation is done with devices such as Kirschner wires, plates and screws, and intramedullary nails. (mckayortho.com)
