The cement-bone interface plays an important role in load transfer between cemented implant systems and adjacent bone, but little is known about the micromechanical behavior of this interface following in vivo service. Small samples of postmortem-retrieved cement-bone specimens from cemented total hip replacements were prepared and mechanically loaded to(More)
Cemented stem constructs were loaded in cyclic fatigue using stair climbing loading and the resulting fatigue damage to the cement mantle was determined in terms of angular position of crack and crack length. Techniques from circular statistics were used to determine if the distribution of micro-cracks was uniform. With a designated orientation of 0 degrees(More)
