Knee specimens were loaded in combinations of compression, anteroposterior force, rotational torque, and varus-valgus moment. The strains on the outer surface of the tibia at four levels were determined from strain gauges. Tibial components of the central peg type were cemented in place and the strains again measured for the same loading combinations, thus obtaining comparisons with the normal. Strain readings were also taken around the central pegs. The variables of the tibial components were… CONTINUE READING
