Fractures of distal femur following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are infrequent, but devastating complications. They require anatomically stable internal fixation. The selection of suitable implant type, which could fixate the fractures of distal femur, is very important problem to solve in the orthopedic practice. This study deals with the fractures in extra-articular part of distal femur and it tries to suggest, which of four implants often used to treat this fracture type is most suitable to fixate the femoral bone. The previously developed FE leg model with implemented TKA was used. Four types of generated implant models were integrated into leg model to simulate the fracture treatment.
