Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a condition in adolescents affecting the proximal femur. Increased mechanical forces result in fracture of the growth plate. Factors increasing the mechanical forces include for example obesity and endocrine disorders. As a result of the fracture a shift of the bone shaft towards the femur head occurs,...

Introduction: A combined bone growth and remodeling model should be created, to investigate the effect of different femur shapes on the risk of developing cam type deformities. The different femur shapes needed for this study can be created using a statistical shape and appearance model (SSAM). The workflow of the combined bone growth and...

This report is the result of a graduation project at the TU Delft, Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. The project was done in collaboration with the Reinier de Graaf Gasthuis. The implantation of a total knee replacement (TKR) is one of the most successful operations in the field of orthopedic surgery. Unfortunately, in 0.6-2.5% of the...

Pre-operative planning aids clinicians by providing insight into patient-specific problems before surgery is performed. For treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), a range of motion (ROM) simulation is used, based on collision detection on segmented CT or MRI-data. Imaging data of the femur is often incomplete, due to the fact that...

Background: Aseptic loosening [AL] of cementless implants is causing approximately 60% of total knee and total hip arthroplasty revisions. AL is caused among other factors by micromotion. The result is that the bone around the prosthesis is replaced by a fibrous membrane. This fibrous membrane allows for more micromotion and we thus enter a...

In the field of bone tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, ex vivo embryonic chick femur culture models have demonstrated their experimental advantages. The work reported in this thesis was dedicated to the development of a framework through a bioreactor approach in combination with the technology of micro-computed tomography (?CT) to...

Cam impingement appears to be an important factor in the development of early osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip. A Cam is generally diagnosed in young and active adults, already at the age of thirteen. Therefore, it has been suggested that excessive femoral loading during skeletal development might trigger the abnormal morphology. The goal of this...
