Patient-specific analysis of cartilage and labrum mechanics in human hips with acetabular dysplasia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Acetabular dysplasia is a major predisposing factor for development of hip osteoarthritis (OA), and may result from alterations to chondrolabral loading. Subject-specific finite element (FE) modeling can be used to evaluate chondrolabral mechanics in the dysplastic hip, thereby providing insight into mechanics that precede OA. OBJECTIVE To… (More)
