OBJECTIVE To determine the biomechanical characteristics and potential clinical efficacy of a cementless modular femoral prosthesis consisting of a variable head (50 to 80 millimeters) and stem (length 120 to 280 millimeters, diameter 10 to 20 millimeters) component in patients with pertrochanteric femoral fracture. DESIGN Finite element analysis (FEA) of different lengths and diameters of prosthesis components and first clinical prospective study in pertrochanteric femoral fracture. METHOD… CONTINUE READING
