Conference paper


One of the main problems in the implantation of conventional total hip prostheses is the exposure of the host bone to unphysiologic loads. Ideally, an endoprosthesis should be designed in such a way that it distributes loads to the bone in a normal fashion. The physiologic stress pattern in the proximal femur is reflected in the geometry of the trabeculae, which align with prevailing compressive and tensile stresses.
