Finite element modeling of resurfacing hip prosthesis: estimation of accuracy through experimental validation.

Abstract:

Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing is becoming increasingly popular, and a number of new devices have been recently introduced that, in the short term, appear to have satisfactory outcome but many questions are still open on the biomechanics of the resurfaced femur. This could be investigated by means of finite element analysis, but, in order to be effective in discerning potential critical conditions, the accuracy of the models' predictions should be assessed. The major goal of this study was to...
