The determination of variation in proximal femoral geometry and shape in primary hip osteoarthritis using active shape modelling

Abstract:

The success of cementless femoral reconstruction in contemporary total hip arthroplasty is dependent on both an adequate endosteal stem fit and the precise restoration of physiologic joint mechanics. With regard to the rising popularity of cementless fixation, modularity and short stem designs, accurate pre-operative templating has become essential as small inaccuracies in the assessment of proximal femoral shape and geometry may compromise the clinical outcome. In addition, the current kn...
