|Publication Date:||10 April 2002|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
1.1 This specification covers the materials, dimensional tolerances, constructions, and mechanical properties for standard metallic implantable strands and cables.
1.2 This specification is intended to assist in the development of specific strand and cable specifications. It is particularly appropriate for high load bearing applications. It is not intended however, to address all of the possible variations in construction, material, or properties.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate.
