With every patient’s anatomy being unique, the outcome of structural heart interventions depends heavily on the interaction between the device and that specific patient. As a leader in personalized computational modeling and simulation for trans-catheter structural heart interventions, FEops applies routine preoperative imaging data to predict the device position and deformation.
In total hip replacement surgery, most traditional designs of femur components have a long stem. Short hip stems have only recently been introduced, and these are presumed to reduce proximal stress shielding compared to traditional, long stems. However, due to their smaller contact area with the bone, high peak stresses and areas of stress shielding could appear in the proximal femur, especially in the presence of atypical bone geometries.
