|Publication Date:||10 April 1998|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
1.1 This practice covers a method for determining the static shear disassembly force of modular glenoid components used in shoulder prostheses. It is intended to be used as a design validation and for comparison with other prostheses.
1.2 This test method covers modular glenoid components comprised of a separate articular insert and backing. The insert and backing can be fabricated from any combination of the following materials: metal alloys, polymeric materials, composite materials.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are regarded as the standard.
1.4 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.
