Standardized Hip Implant by Cluster Analysis of Anthropometry Parameters of Femur

Gajanan Damodhar Mandavgade and Tushar Ramkrishna Deshmukh    

Abstract: Background and Objective: A range of research told that there is extensive variations in the sizes and shapes of femur bone across different ethnic groups and geographical locations, thus particular bone-implant fit is challenging to achieve. Prosthesis of mismatched sized can caused serious problems for patients. Thus aim of the study was to design standard hip implant based on anatomical parameter of respective population. Materials and Methods: Eleven osteological parameter of femoral prosthesis of 125 patient (67 male and 59 female) were evaluated, these eleven parameter were grouped to obtain scatter diagram. Then cluster analysis in SPSS software V25 was carried out by using slink clustering method. Results: After studying scatter diagram it was found that 15% population had irregular anatomy then rest of population. So, remaining data put under cluster analysis gives 8 (4 for men and 4 for women) sets of standard anatomical parameter for designing hip implant. Conclusion: These eight standard hip implant satisfy 85% population of Vidarbha region.
