Effects of acetabular resurfacing component material and fixation on the strain distribution in the pelvis.

Abstract:

A 3D finite element (FE) model of an implanted pelvis was developed as part of a project investigating an all-polymer hip resurfacing design. The model was used to compare this novel design with a metal-on-metal design in current use and a metal-on-polymer design typical of early resurfacing implants. The model included forces representing the actions of 22 muscles as well as variable cancellous bone stiffness and variable cortical shell thickness. The hip joint reaction force was applied via...
