In total hip replacement surgery, short hip stems are presumed to reduce proximal stress shielding compared to traditional, long stems. Belgian researchers virtually implanted a commercially available calcar-guided short stem in a series of bones with deviating proximal geometry and performed finite element analyses. Given the large number of FEA models that had to be created, they used an automated methodology.
