Abstract

A study was carried out to measure and calculate an array of biomechanical variables which may be used to assess the pathomechanics of the patellofemoral joint (PFJ) in an osteoarthritis (OA) patient, prior to surgery. Sixteen patients were analyzed. It was found that a variety of patient-specific biomechanical variables can be either measured or calculated in vivo using a combination of magnetoresonance imaging and patient-specific multi-body modeling.
