Finite element analysis to characterize how varying patellar loading influences pressure applied to cartilage: model evaluation.

Abstract

A finite element analysis (FEA) modeling technique has been developed to characterize how varying the orientation of the patellar tendon influences the patellofemoral pressure distribution. To evaluate the accuracy of the technique, models were created from MRI images to represent five knees that were previously tested in vitro to determine the influence of… (More)
