Contact between the acetabulum and dome of a Kerboull-type plate influences the stress on the plate and screw

Abstract

We used a three-dimensional finite element method to investigate the conditions behind the Kerboull-type (KT) dome. The KT plate dome was divided into five areas, and 14 models were created to examine different conditions of dome contact with the acetabulum. The maximum stress on the KT plate and screws was estimated for each model. Furthermore, to… (More)
