We reviewed 60 patients with 72 TARA (total articular replacement arthroplasty) resurfacing hip prostheses. To analyse the behaviour of the femoral component a radiographic study was done and a two-dimensional finite element model was constructed. The stem of the femoral component plays a role in the load transfer mechanism. Stress shielding is seen in the proximal femur but depends on the interface conditions. When only the dome of the cup is assumed to be bonded to the bone, the stresses in… CONTINUE READING
