In Silico Analysis of the Biomechanical Stability of Commercially Pure Ti and Ti-15Mo Plates

What is it about?

To investigate the influence of different materials and fixation methods on maximum principal stress (MPS) and displacement in reconstruction plates using in silico 3-dimensional finite element analysis (3D-FEA).

Why is it important?

This in silico 3D-FEA shows that Ti-15Mo plates have greater load-bearing capability. Copyright © 2017 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
