Dear All,

I am interested in the design of femoral stems for artificial
knee joints and for artificial hip joints. I would especially like
to become acquainted with the various designs currently available, and
to have the reasons for the designs explained.

Can anyone direct me to some good review papers that deal with the
design of femoral stems? Alternatively is there a quick way to find
out about the designs currently available?

All references will be gratefully accepted, and a summary of replies
will be posted.

Thanking you in advance.
