Mobile-bearing total knee arthroplasty designs were thought to be associated with lesser stresses on the polyethylene (PE) insert as compared to fixed-bearing designs. The wear rate of the PE liner was felt to be less in the mobile-bearing knees due to the decrease in the stresses. However, a reevaluation of the biomechanics of the mobile-bearing design is(More)
STUDY DESIGN Experimental study. PURPOSE The aim of the study was to develop a finite element (FE) model to study the long-term effects of various types of lumbar spinal interventions on the discs adjacent to the fused segment. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Earlier FE studies have been limited to one particular type of fusion and comparative quantification of(More)
