    ..Two-way ANOVA indicated syndesmotic screw fixation significantly increased contact pressure in the medial/lateral gutters and decreased talar dome contact pressure while minimally altering talar position. ..
  2. Thomas Aitken H, Willey M, Goetz J. Joint contact stresses calculated for acetabular dysplasia patients using discrete element analysis are significantly influenced by the applied gait pattern. J Biomech. 2018;79:45-53 pubmed publisher
    ..These results indicate that utilizing a dysplastic gait pattern to load DEA models may be a crucial element to capturing contact stress patterns most representative of this patient population. ..

    ..This work characterizes the mechanical environment present in a quadrupedal animal knee joint after two methods to reproducibly induce joint injury features that lead to PTOA. ..
  8. Townsend K, Thomas Aitken H, Rudert M, Kern A, Willey M, Anderson D, et al. Discrete element analysis is a valid method for computing joint contact stress in the hip before and after acetabular fracture. J Biomech. 2018;67:9-17 pubmed publisher
    ..4-60%). These results indicate that the DEA methodology is a valid method for accurately estimating contact stress in both intact and fractured hips. ..
