Journal of Arthroplasty, 08/10/2012
Small SR et al. – This study was designed to examine the combined effects of acetabular cup orientation and stiffness and on pelvic osseous loading. This study illustrates the effects of cup stiffness, gait, and implant orientation on loading distributions across the implanted pelvis.
