Finite Element Analysis to Examine the Mechanical Stimuli Distributions in the Hip with Cam Femoroacetabular Impingement

Kwan-Ching Geoffrey Ng
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is recognized as a pathomechanical process that leads to hip osteoarthritis (OA). It is hypothesized that mechanical stimuli are prominent at higher range of motions in hips with cam FAI (aspherical femoral head-neck deformity). Adverse loading conditions can impose elevated mechanical stimuli levels at the articulating surfaces and underlying subchondral bone, which plays a predominant mechanical role in early OA. The aim of this research was to determine the levels of mechanical...
