Effects of in vitro wear of machined and molded UHMWPE tibial inserts on TKR kinematics.

Abstract

The effect of manufacturing process on the wear and mechanical performance of a total knee replacement (TKR) design was investigated with the use of a force-controlled knee joint simulator. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) tibial inserts processed by direct compression molding from 1900H resin were compared to UHMWPE tibial inserts machined… (More)
