Fea Proximal Tibial

  1. 2. <ul><li>To design a Proximal Tibial Model using the tibial component, the cancellous and the cortical bones; and assembling these three parts together. </li></ul><ul><li>Additionally, to construct a new bone and tibia assembly and run Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on the model using Pro Mechanica to determine the Maximum Principal Stress and the von- Mises Stress exerted by the model. </li></ul><ul><li>DESIGN GOALS: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Effective kinematics restoration </li></ul><ul><li>2. Long term performance </li></ul><ul><li>3. Long term fixation </li></ul><ul><li>4. Installation with minimal damage to collateral structures </li></ul>01/28/10
  2. 3. <ul><li>A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. </li></ul><ul><li>The thigh bone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. </li></ul><ul><li>The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem. </li></ul><ul><li>Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic &quot;button&quot; may also be added under the kneecap surface. </li></ul>01/28/10
  3. 4. <ul><li>Tibial tray and stem </li></ul><ul><li>High performance Cortical and Cancellous bone designs to fit the tibia </li></ul><ul><li>A/P and M/L curvatures match normal knee </li></ul><ul><li>Deep flexion ROM </li></ul><ul><li>Excellent range of tibia sizing options </li></ul><ul><li>FEA analysis on the proximal tibial model </li></ul><ul><li>Stress analysis and Results </li></ul>01/28/10

  6. 7. <ul><li>The sizes applied to the tibial model are shown on the left. These are pretty standard and are observed in many commercial tibial systems. </li></ul><ul><li>These were referenced from the knee brochure from www.endotec.com </li></ul>01/28/10

  9. 10. <ul><li>The cancellous and cortical bone Pro/E Designs were provided by Dr. Makris (BME Department, NJIT). </li></ul><ul><li>The designs were created by using a standard swept blend and sketch options in Pro/E. </li></ul><ul><li>The bones were then cutout using the cutout feature. </li></ul><ul><li>Both the bones were assembled together using the assembly creation in Pro/E. </li></ul>01/28/10

  16. 17. <ul><li>In the Applications section in Pro/E; click on Mechanica to run FEA </li></ul><ul><li>In Z-direction, apply a load of 100N on the top surface of the tibial component </li></ul><ul><li>Apply displacement constraint at the bottom of the bone </li></ul><ul><li>Assign the required materials and properties to the tibia and the bone </li></ul><ul><li>Run new static analysis for the results </li></ul>01/28/10

This is understandable since the load is applied on the tibial surface. Also, the cutout on the bone shows a high stress due to the force applied on the tibia </li></ul>01/28/10
  23. 24. <ul><li>The scope and design goals of the project are achieved. A Proximal tibial model with a tibial component, a cortical and a cancellous bone assembled together were used as a model to run the FEA. </li></ul><ul><li>The results of the FEA showed higher stress on the top surface of the tibial tray and the bottom curvature of the tibial stem as suspected </li></ul>01/28/10
