Background Iliac crest bone harvesting is a frequently performed surgical procedure widely used to treat bone defects. The objective of this study is to assess the biomechanical quantities related to risk for pelvic fracture after harvesting an autologous bone graft at the anterior iliac crest. Methods Finite element models with a simulated harvest site (sized 15 × 20 mm, 15 × 35 mm, 30 × 20 ...
