EVALUATION OF WOLFF'S LAW OF BONE FORMATION.

KUSHNER, ALEXANDER
The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: July 1940
Archive: PDF Only

1. Clinical evidence in support of Wolff's law as originally propounded has been cited.

2. Jansen's contention that tension always produces bone atrophy is not substantiated, and his proposal that Wolff's law be modified accordingly is unwarranted.

3. A bone graft will survive and will continue to hypertrophy, although under constant tension.
