Epub Oct Supplemental Content Full text links. The results can be used to compare different component designs in terms of the relative mechanical parameters.

Other mechanical variables, describing implant design were considered, and all parameters were investigated using a numerical parametric finite element model. Spinal Fixtures ASTM F – CP During normal patient activity, spinal constructs can be subjected to high in vivo loading ashm can result in catastrophic failure. Methods for three static load types and one fatigue test are defined for the comparative evaluation of spinal implant assemblies.

The eXpert system is also capable of performing the static compression and tension bending tests outlined in ASTM F The stress on the pedicular screw is significantly influenced by the lever arm of the applied load, the unsupported screw length, the position of the centre of rotation of the functional spine unit and the pedicular f17177 with respect to the sagittal plane.

These asttm methods outline standard materials and methods for the evaluation of different spinal implant assemblies so that comparison between different designs may be facilitated.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Powered entirely from a single-phase mains supply, asmt feature the latest in testing technology and a host of other user-oriented features.

ASTM F1717 Spinal Implant Construct Biaxial Testing

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. For application of torsional strain, we recommend any of asttm torsion tabletop testing systems.


Repeating all or part of these test methods in simulated body fluid, saline 9 g NaCl per mL watera saline drip, water, or a lubricant should be considered.

The American Society for Testing and Materials reapproved F standard for the assessment of mechanical properties of posterior spinal fixators, which simulates a vertebrectomy model and recommends mimicking vertebral bodies using polyethylene blocks.

ASTM F1717 standard for the preclinical evaluation of posterior spinal fixators: can we improve it?

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. We’re ready to help! The three static tests are compression bending, tension bending and torsion. We propose to revise F in order to describe the anatomical worst case condition we found at L1 level: Stress values were calculated by considering either the combination of the average values for wstm parameter or their worst-case combination depending on the spinal level.

During normal patient activity, spinal constructs can be subjected to high in vivo loading that can result in catastrophic failure. Compressive Bending Fatigue Test — Apply a constant load amplitude sinusoidal control profile at no faster than 5Hz.

For the majority of spinal construct testing, ultra high molecular weight polyethylene UHMWPE blocks are used aztm than vertebrae to eliminate the variances that bone properties and geometry may introduce.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Abstract Preclinical evaluation of spinal implants is a necessary step to ensure their reliability and safety before implantation. They allow comparison of spinal sstm constructs with different intended spinal locations and methods of application to the spine. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The results obtained here cannot be used directly to predict in vivo performance. How can we help you? The fatigue test is a compression bending test. The ElectroPulsTM E Linear-Torsion f1177 a state-of-the-art, all-electric test instrument designed for dynamic and static testing on a wide range of materials and components.

Preclinical evaluation of spinal implants is a necessary step to ensure their reliability and safety before implantation. Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: Contact Us Request an Accessory Catalog.

These test methods are not intended to define levels of performance, since sufficient knowledge is not available to predict the consequences of the use of a particular device. An f177 of the four test procedures is as follows:.

The test materials for most combinations of spinal implant components can be specific, depending on the intended spinal location and intended method of application to the spine.
