Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 August 1999
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
scope:

1.1 This specification covers the properties and test methods for porous high density and ultra high molecular weight polyethylenes intended for use in surgical implants. The porous polyethylene may be used as a free standing product or as a coating on a substrate in nonloaded applications..

1.2 Evaluation of tissue response to a porous polyethylene must be completed. Guidance in establishing biocompatibility may be found in the list of references.

1.3 Clinical experience and animal studies have shown that tissue will grow into the open pores of porous polyethylene. The tissue ingrowth into the pores may allow for the establishment of implant fixation.

1.4 This section 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.
