    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers a method for the fatigue testing of metallic stemmed femoral components used in hip arthroplasty. The described method is intended to be used for evaluation in comparisons of various designs and materials used for stemmed femoral components used in the arthroplasty. This practice covers procedures for the performance of fatigue tests using (as a forcing function) a periodic constant amplitude force.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices, this practice was withdrawn in November 2011.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers a method for the fatigue testing of metallic stemmed femoral components used in hip arthroplasty. The described method is intended to be used for evaluation in comparisons of various designs and materials used for stemmed femoral components used in the arthroplasty. This practice covers procedures for the performance of fatigue tests using (as a forcing function) a periodic constant amplitude force.

    1.2 This practice applies primarily to one-piece prostheses and femoral stems with modular heads, with the head in place. Such prostheses should not have an anterior-posterior A-P bow or a medial-lateral M-L bow, and they should have a nearly straight section on the distal 50 mm of the stem. This practice may require modifications to accommodate other femoral stem designs.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
