The objective of our wear simulator study was to evaluate the suitability of two different carbon fibre-reinforced poly-ether-ether-ketone (CFR-PEEK) materials for fixed bearing unicompartmental knee articulations with low congruency. In vitro wear simulation was performed according to ISO 14243-1:2002 (E) with the clinically introduced Univation F fixed(More)
The objective of our study was to evaluate the in vitro wear behavior of fixed bearing designs for total knee arthroplasty in relation to contact mechanics and resultant kinematics for different degrees of congruency. a finite element model was created for three knee articulations with increasing degrees of tibio-femoral congruency (flat, curved, and dished(More)
The objective of our study was to determine the mechanical stress conditions under tibiofemoral loading with an overlay of knee kinematics in deep flexion on two different mobile bearing designs in comparison to in vivo failure modes. This study investigates the seldom but severe complication of fatigue failure of polyethylene components at mobile bearing(More)
An implantable transducer capable of telemetering epidural brain pressure during long periods of time is described. The transducer is constructed from conventionally available materials, and routine workshop techniques are used. The coplanarity principle has been applied while the described mounting clamp allows discrete positioning of the transducer(More)
