    Revision of F1378 - 17 Standard Specification for Shoulder Prostheses

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1378 - 18e1

    Developed by Subcommittee: F04.22 | Committee F04 | Contact Staff Manager



    arthroplasty; glenoid; humeral; prostheses; hemi-shoulder replacement; total shoulder replacement;;


    The arthroplasty subcommittee is working at modifying the arthroplasty standards which have a requirement about the minimum number of samples that should be tested. Rather than writing a blanket standard and applying it to all related arthroplasty standards, our first step is to apply some sample size determination principals to one pair of standards. F1378 is the specification for total shoulder replacements and refers to a test method, F1829. Therefore this ballot will affect both standards and only if all of it is approved should any change be made to either existing standard.
