FE modeling of biological tissues and physiological behavior is now becoming common practice with the improvement in finite element analysis (FEA) software and the significant increase in capability of computing resources. There are many uses for FEA of this nature, one of which has been simulating the mechanical behavior of implant devices for fracture repair. FE analysis offers insight into the mechanistic behavior of fixation plates used in rigid internal fixation and, if modeled carefully, could eventually become an accurate design tool.
