  • There is a large gap between the elastic modulus of the existing femoral stem and the host bone. This gap can lead to long-term complications, such as aseptic loosening and, eventually, a need for revision surgery. The porous metallic biomimetic femoral stem can effectively reduce stress shielding and provide firm implant fixation through bone ingrowth. The purpose of this research is to investigate the application of different porous femoral stems in relieving bone resorption and promoting… CONTINUE READING
