    Background: Complications such as Nonunion, Metal failure and Periprosthetic fracture were found after the TCVO surgery accounting for the mechanical reasons mainly, moreover. There was no any research for simulating TCVO model by using the finite element analysis from the literature. Methods: A TCVO model with 25° fixed with compression hip screw system, which assigned an isotropic heterogeneous material property for the femur was estimated and simulated initial post-operative stage and bone-healing stage, in which the mechanical parameters were compared. Results: (1) The Max displacement in non-friction condition was 9.695 mm. And a strong decrease with the Max displacement of 3.456 mm in condition of bonding for the interfaces. (2) The concentration of von Mises stress on the interfaces were present at the a.. View More»
