Modular hip prostheses are increasing in variety and utilization. Component stability, high endurance limit, and minimal particulate debris generation are critical for long-term clinical success. The purpose of this study was to characterize the fatigue response and evaluate the in vitro potential for component motion and wear of the S-ROM¿, a Ti-6Al-4V hip prothesis with a modular design based on a Morse taper connection. A fatigue jib was designed to simulate fixation of the device at the… CONTINUE READING
