64 patients scheduled to undergo total hip arthroplasty were randomized to receive either a VerSys or ABG-II cemented femoral stem. Bone mineral density was monitored over a 5 year follow-up period and a finite element (FE) simulation was run concurrently, modelling stem mechanical behavior and measuring the biomechanical variations. At 5 years postoperatively, correlations between clinical result...
