Standard Test Methods for the Dynamic Evaluation of Glenoid Loosening or Disassociation
|Publication Date:||10 November 2002|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
1.1 These test methods measure how much a prosthetic glenoid component rocks or pivots following cyclic displacement of the humeral head to opposing glenoid rims (for example, superior-inferior or anterior-posterior).
1.2 The same setup can be used to test the locking mechanism of modular glenoid components, for example, for disassociation.
1.3 The test method covers shoulder replacement designs with both monolithic and modular humeral and glenoid components with either cemented or noncemented fixation.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
