Feasibility of heating metal implants with alternating magnetic fields (AMF) in scaled up models

Conclusion: This study confirmed that AMF technology can be scaled up to treat implants in a large animal model with the same rates of heating and peak temperatures achieved in prior in vitro studies. Further, numerical simulations provided accurate predictions of the heating produced by AMF on metal implants and surrounding tissues, and can be used to design AMF coils for treating human prosthetic joint implants with more complex geometrical shapes.PMID:34949138 | DOI:10.1080/02656736.2021.2011434
