The same biphasic finite element model which was developed in Part I for hemiarthroplasy resurfacing, was used in this study and the femoral component was created with a 2 mm thick polycarbonate urethane layer as shown in Figure 1.
To compare metal on cartilage and polycarbonate urethane on cartilage models, same loading and boundary conditions were applied to the finite element model.
Figure 2 (a) shows a comparison of the predicted contact pressure distribution on bearing surface of articular cartilage for employing different biomaterials such as metal and polycarbonate urethane. The contact pressure at the centre of the contact was reduced approximately 12% by using polycarbonate urethane layer on contact surface of femoral component instead of metal on cartilage bearing couple.
A comparison of the effect of the radial clearance on predicted contact pressure distribution and pore pressure distribution under nominal load of 2500 N between metal on cartilage and polycarbonate urethane on cartilage models are shown in Fig.
For all loading conditions, the predicted maximum contact pressure and pore pressure have decreased approximately 12% by using polycarbonate urethane layer on articulating surface of femoral component instead of metal as shown in Fig.
Figure 5 shows that the comparison of effect of varying articular cartilage thickness on the predicted maximum contact pressure and pore pressure between metal on cartilage and polycarbonate urethane on cartilage models.
A decrease in articular cartilage thickness of acetabulum from its nominal value of 2 mm to 1 mm resulted in most significant effect on the predicted maximum contact pressure and pore pressure for metal on cartilage and polycarbonate urethane on cartilage models in this study.
