The key to the development of a successful implant is an understanding of the effect of bone remodelling on its long-term fixation. In this study, clinically observed patterns of bone remodelling have been compared with computer-based predictions for one particular design of prosthesis, the Thrust Plate Prosthesis (Centerpulse Orthopedics, Winterthur, Switzerland). Three-dimensional finite-element models were created using geometrical and bone density data obtained from CT scanning. Results from the bone remodelling simulation indicated that varying the relative rate of bone deposition/resorption and the interfacial conditions between the bone and the implant could produce the trend towards the two clinically observed patterns of remodelling
