Significance and Use

5.1 These test methods are intended to determine the ultimate failure load of a ceramic femoral knee component. This information can be used for evaluation of different ceramic component designs or different ceramic materials, or for series production control.

5.2 Although the test methodology described attempts to identify physiologically relevant intraoperative and in vivo loading conditions, the interpretation of results is limited to an in vitro comparison between ceramic femoral component designs and materials regarding their static ultimate failure load under the stated test conditions.

Scope

1.1 The test methods included in this standard cover two procedures for static burst testing of a ceramic femoral component used in total knee replacement (TKR). The two procedures are used to determine the static ultimate failure load of a ceramic femoral knee component. Both procedures are simulating in vivo loading conditions. One of the procedures additionally simulates intraoperative loading conditions. The standard applies to cruciate retaining (CR) femoral components which cover both the medial and lateral condyles and the patellar surface of the femur. These test methods may require modifications to accommodate other femoral component designs.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
