Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 September 2009
Status: active
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics): 11.040.40
scope:

This specification covers material requirements for unfabricated and fabricated forms of hydrated calcium sulfate intended for surgical implants. Fabricated forms may include pressed and cast surgical implants in various geometric shapes. The calcium sulfate hemihydrate in the unfabricated form can be converted with the addition of water or other watercontaining solutions to a fabricated calcium sulfate dihydrate form.

The requirements of this specification apply to calcium sulfate combined with two molecules of water or two calcium sulfate molecules sharing one water molecule.

Approximate chemical formulae:

Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate

CaSO4·2H2O

Calcium Sulfate Hemihydrate

CaSO4·1/2H2O or CaSO4·H2O·CaSO4

This specification specifically excludes calcium sulfate anhydrite and calcium sulfate forms that contain additives such as reinforcing phases, medicaments, biological agents, and so forth.

The presence of processing aids does not exclude a product from the physical and mechanical requirements of this specification.

Some provisions of Specification C59/C59M and Test Methods C472 apply. Special requirements that are detailed in this specification are included to characterize the material which will be used in surgical implants.

The biological response to calcium sulfate in bone tissue has been well characterized by a history of clinical use (1-14)2 and by laboratory studies (15-18).

The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Sections 4, 5, and 6, of this specification.

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.

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.
