Abstract: This paper represents a part of an extensive study that focused on the comparative analysis of three types of custom hip prostheses. The presented study consists in two individual numerical analyses: the natural femur and femur with short-stem implant. The biomechanical behavior analysis of the custom prosthesis was performed using ANSYS Workbench V9.0 program, Simulation module. The numerical analysis results showed the stress and deformations of the studied structures, from which we can choose the optimal implant model.
