Friction-induced squeak of ceramic-on-ceramic hip implants: a stability design criteria
Friction-induced squeaking has been reported in 1–10% of patients who have a ceramic on ceramic total hip replacement, which is a subject of annoyance. The goal of this study was to investigate the possible factors attributing ...
The effect of cement viscosity in total knee arthroplasty
Aseptic loosening of the tibial implant remains one of the major reasons of failure in Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). Currently, there is no consensus on the role that cement viscosity at the time of application to the ...
Investigation of the effect of cement viscosity in total knee arthroplasty using digital image correlation
Approximately 581,000 knee replacements are performed in the United States each year. Micromotion at the bone-cement and cement-implant interfaces causes bone resorption and loosening of the ...
Finite element analysis of the influence of cement viscosity on cement mantle in total knee arthroplasty
Aseptic loosening of the tibial implant is one of the major reasons of failure in Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). The cement viscosity at the time of application to the bone influences the cement penetration and stability ...
Failure analysis of surrogate tibial constructs with medium and fast setting bone cements
One of the major reasons of failure in Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) is aseptic loosening of the tibial implant. Currently, cement viscosity’s role in ensuring the long-term success of the arthroplasty is not clear. We ...
