O ver the past several years, many human spinal surgery studies have used finiteelementanalysis (FEA) to investigate the risk of vertebral fracture and predict spinal stability after surgical treatment, demonstrating the usefulness of this
changes in CPP and ICP
An initial experiment was conducted to analyze changes in the biomechanical behavior of a geometrically normal brain. Finiteelementanalysis was performed to simulate changes in stress and strain for ICPs within the reference
spoon's structural integrity. Finiteelementanalysis (FEA) was then conducted to validate the bend-test findings and subsequently to estimate strength in the use-case typical to a cystotomy. Lastly, the 3-D printed cystotomy spoons were distributed to 7
extension. 47 These results can contribute to the development of a finiteelementanalysis model to elucidate the hinge and rotational elements of the medial aspect of the femorotibial joint in horses.
Morphological characteristics changed dramatically as
methods, such as finiteelementanalysis, require accurate representation of soft tissues (including the ligaments) to reproduce the physiologic function of the joint or joints evaluated. Hence, we evaluated the mechanical properties of canine carpal
