PGV2329 Left Femoral Diaphysis Femur Fracture 3D Model
This is the first model of two associated elements. The fracture of the neck of the femur has led to a complete separation of the femoral head from the diaphysis. This model represents the diaphysis, the second model is the associated head. The gross pathological changes seen are a ‘pseudoarthrosis’ or ‘false joint’, where the head, though separate, came into contact with the diaphysis when the hip was used, leading to severe osteoarthritis. The skeletal remains were found during excavations by AOC archaeology in response to a development in Bethnal Green revealing part of an area that had been a privately run burial ground, in use between 1840-1855. The area in East London was socially deprived with the individuals being of a poorer economic status & many of the 1033 individuals excavated exhibiting diseases associated with living in such conditions. https://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/collections/other-collection-databases-and-libraries/centre-human-bioarchaeology/impact-industrialisation-london-health
