Contact stresses in the hip articular surfaces relate in some way to normal maintenance as well as destruction of joints. In vivo determinations of cartilage-on-cartilage contact pressure histories have never been reported, and current technology does not allow such measurements without the potential for artifact: all experimental methods require introducing some material between the surfaces, and all numerical methods have yet to be fully validated. Nonetheless, a variety of distinct… CONTINUE READING
