Load-transfer analysis after insertion of cementless anatomical femoral stem using pre- and post-operative CT images based patient-specific finite element analysis.

Abstract

Periprosthetic bone remodeling is commonly seen after total hip arthroplasty, but the remodeling pattern differs among patients even in those implanted with the same stem. Remodeling occurs mainly because of the difference in load transmitted from the stem to the femur. In this study, we evaluated the load-transfer pattern in eight female patients implanted… (More)
