Many applications in orthopaedic surgery require the creation of personalised design models that can serve as the basis for navigation in computer aided surgery systems or be used to create a personalised model to perform structural analysis during pre-operative planning or post-operative follow-up. The paper introduces a method for developing a(More)
The correct estimation of stem boundary conditions in hip arthroplasty cannot be performed simply by subtracting the prosthesis volume from the bone volume: the stem implant path needs to be taken into account. Digital mock-up is a technique commonly applied in the automotive field which can be used for this aim. Given a certain femur, a stem, and an(More)
A global study of geometry and material properties of orthopedic screws was performed, considering not only the effect of each single factor (screw pitch, number of threads, fillet angle, etc.) but also their interactions with respect to bone density.The stress patterns resulting from different screw geometries and bone densities were analyzed using finite(More)
