Measurements were done with the femoral shafts vertical, at 15 [degrees] adduction and at 15 [degrees] abduction to determine initial strains as a control.
The principle superior strains for the femoral neck (in 15 [degrees] adduction) were 25% to 80% greater for all angulations of the surface replacement head except for varus positioning where it was approximately 50% less (Fig.
The principle superior strains from the femoral neck (in 15 [degrees] adduction) were 35% to 120% greater for all translations of the surface replacement head, except for inferior positioning where it was approximately 50% less (Fig.
