Abstract

The present study is based on our own investigations:
  1. 1.

    Dimensions of the femoral condyles (measurements in 70 cadaver femurs)

     
  2. 2.

    Strain gauge analysis on different GSB knee prostheses

     
  3. 3.

    Design of the tibial component with finite-element models

     
  4. 4.

    Extensive computer study based on standard clinical X-ray pictures (Iongterm evaluation of patients with knee arthroplasty)

     
  5. 5.

    Long-term computed tomographic evaluation with densitometry

     

Furthermore, a review of the literature published in the last 3 years is presented.
