Abstract
Surgical simulations are particularly appropriate for the large volume and expense of joint replacement procedures in orthopaedics. A first generation surgical simulator has been developed to model the implantation procedure for cementless acetabular and femoral components in total hip replacement surgery. The simulator is based upon finite clement analysis and predicts thc early postoperative mechanical environment that results from a proposed surgery. Since the short- and long-term clinical success of cementless hip replacement components is very dependent upon the initial mechanics of the bone-implant system, such simulations can help orthopaedic surgeons to develop better preoperative plans.
