Finding the Perfect Fit: An Anatomical Population Study into the Trochlear Groove Orientation and Modern Femoral Implant Designs through Scripting
About this webinar
In this webinar, Dr. Yifei Dai (Exactech Inc.) will present a study in which she characterized the native trochlear groove in 91 healthy subjects through scripting in the Mimics Innovation Suite and performed a virtual implant fit study to assess how well the modern TKA systems, representing two major trochlear compartment design philosophies, mimicked the native morphology.
Through this study, she was able to show that design philosophy impacts the ability of the implant in the restoration of the native trochlear groove orientation in conjunction with minimizing component overhang. The target audience for this webinar is those interested in morphological analysis, implant design, and virtual population studies in general.
What you will learn
- How Dr. Yifei Dai assessed modern TKA systems' ability to mimic native morphology
- How using scripting in Mimics Innovation Suite helped her to carry out a population study of 91 patients
