Daniel Gilroy, Philip Riches, Marcus Wheel

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A sliding hip screw (SHS) is an orthopaedic device that is used in the treatment of extracapsular proximal femoral fractures. This paper presents the development of a
finite element (FE) model of an SHS implanted in a fractured femur.
