Development And Validation Of Robust 3d -Solid Model Of Human Femur Using CT Data

An emerging focus on the investigation and analysis of the biomechanics of human bone is to generate a pre- clinical information which is helpful for the researcher and orthopedicians has been seen. For this, a geometric model that acts like a natural bone have increasingly been considered to better understand the mechanics of the bone. Hip joint is one of the most important joints in the human body. It is formed by the articulation of femur and acetabulum of the pelvis. It allows us to walk, run, and jump. It bears our body’s weight and the force of the strong muscles of the hip and leg. So, aim of this study is to reconstruct appropriate three-dimensional (3D) computer aided design (CAD) of femur for prediction of stress transfer after total hip replacement (THR). A 3D finite element model of femur was developed based on computed tomography (CT), DICOM images and finally a developed finite element (FE) model was analyzed under physiological load conditions. The results of the analysis are helpful for the orthopedic surgeon to understand the mechanical behavior of the femur bone and in hip replacement surgeries and implant fixation.
