Effects of corticosteroids on trabecular bone mechanical properties in a rabbit model

Academic Article


  • A study was carried out to test for altered mechanical properties in trabecular bone cubes harvested from a corticosteroid-induced osteonecrosis rabbit model. Confirmation of reduced trabecular strength and stiffness lend support for the use of the rabbit model in future bone augmentation studies.
