Fretting corrosion tests on orthopedic plates and screws made of ASTM F138 stainless steel
We correlate the surface finish characteristics of bone plate-screw systems with fretting corrosion and demonstrate its influence on the structural integrity of osteosynthesis implants. Expand

Characterization of the fretting corrosion behavior, surface and debris from head-taper interface of two different modular hip prostheses.
Modular hip prostheses are flexible to match anatomical variations and to optimize mechanical and tribological properties of each part by using different materials. However, micromotions associatedExpand
