Abstract

Functional reconstruction of bones and joints by total joint replacement has become an attractive alternative to limb amputation. This paper addresses design of the stem to establish an optimal stem shape for a specific bone when its dimensions are known from x-rays, and to establish an optimal dimensional classification system.
