Assessment of retention force and bone apposition in two differently coated femoral stems after 6 months of loading in a goat model
(BioMed Central, 2014-08-16)
Background: Since the introduction of uncemented hip implants, there has been a search for the best surface coating to enhance bone apposition in order to improve retention. The surface coating of the different stems ...
Can bone apposition predict the retention force of a femoral stem? An experimental weight-bearing hip-implant model in goats
(BioMed Central, 2015-04-28)
Background: The increasing incidence of prosthesis revision surgery in the Western world has led to an increased focus on the capacity for stem removal. We previously reported on a femoral stem implanted in goats with ...
