Abstract

Abductor weakness, and the resulting Trendelenburg gait, after total hip arthroplasty is believed to be associated with a poor long-term outcome. We have constructed a two-dimensional finite element analysis using load cases to mimic this abductor weakness. The finite element analysis demonstrates slightly increased stresses, particularly at the bone-cement interface in the DeLee-Chamley zone I, which does not seem sufficient to explain the adverse effect of abductor weakness.
