The natural non-spherical incongruent hip joint cartilage surface is normally assumed as spherical in shape, which has been extensively applied in orthopedic clinic, hip joint simulation studies and hip joint prosthesis design. The aim of the study was to investigate the contributions of non-spherical incongruent hip joint cartilage surface to the hip joint contact stress, and to assess the effect of simplified spherical assumption on the predicted contact stress. Based on our previous anatomic… CONTINUE READING
