Laboratory development of a method of attaching ceramic femoral heads to metal stems



Laboratory development of a method of attaching ceramic femoral heads to metal stems



Biomaterials 7(2): 83-88



A method of attaching ceramic femoral heads to metal stems has been developed and tested in the laboratory. Impact tests, fatigue tests in Ringer's solution at body temperature, and tests of the strength of fixation of head to stem, suggest that the method offers significant advantages over the taper-fit method of attachment.
