X-Ray Image Review of the Bone Remodeling Around an Osseointegrated Trans-femoral Implant and a Finite Element Simulation Case Study

Abstract

The insertion of an implant into a bone leads to stress/strain redistribution, hence bone remodeling occurs adjacent to the implant. The study of the bone remodeling around the osseointegration implants can predict the long-term clinical success of the implant. The clinical medial–lateral X-rays of 11 patients were reviewed. To eliminate geometrical… (More)
