Quantification of implant micromotion, strain shielding, and bone resorption with porous-coated anatomic medullary locking femoral prostheses.

Abstract

Fourteen femora containing porous-coated anatomic medullary locking (AML) femoral prostheses were retrieved from 12 patients at autopsy. Clinical roentgenograms in 13 femora showed bone remodeling changes, indicating that the implants were fixed by osseointegration. Under simulated physiologic loading, micromotion between the implant and the bone was… (More)
