Current challenges in orthopedic surgery and the role of biomechanics
Knee replacement surgery is a successful intervention that is performed by orthopedic surgeons to relieve the pain and restore the normal function of the knee joint. Despite its high success rate in the clinical setting, there are several intraoperative surgical or patient-dependent factors which can affect the postoperative outcome, and subsequently, lead to implant failure and poor patient satisfaction. Thereon, subject-specific biomechanical models can be used to assist surgeons in developing preoperative plans to optimize surgical outcomes.
