Load-shift--numerical evaluation of a new design philosophy for uncemented hip prostheses.

Abstract

All hip replacement prostheses alter the load transfer from the hip joint into the femur by changing the mechanical loading of the proximal femur from an externally to an internally loaded system. This alteration of the load transfer causes stress shielding and might lead to severe bone loss, especially with uncemented prostheses. To minimize these effects… (More)
