Abstract

In present paper we considered if temperature effects the growth of microcracks in a broken femur with AMBI. We studied three particularly points of fracture. We used theory of adaptive elasticity neglecting and accounting temperature and energy density theory. We showed for both cases: that after a long time femur locally at points of our interest: i) will be (quickly or normally or delayed) united. Our results are verified by clinical studies. We concluded that temperature plays no role to growth of microcracks.
