    Get 29 papers that were presented by clinicians and scientists at an ASTM symposium held on November 10, 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The purpose of symposium was to address best testing practices in the following areas:

    • Characterization of Fretting, Taper Corrosion & Associated Adverse Tissue Reactions
    • What Do Retrievals Tell Us in Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA)?
    • Contemporary & Evolving Test Methodologies
    • Design Parameters for Taper Connections in TJA

    Gain insight into the evolving knowledge base of structural damage, component disassembly, metallic debris, and fretting, corrosion, and ion release.
