Fretting corrosion studies of universal femoral head prostheses and cone taper spigots.


Short-duration, cyclically loaded, axial, fretting corrosion tests were designed and performed to compare the fretting behaviour of different metal Howmedica universal heads connected to coated and uncoated metal cone taper spigots. Concurrent axial push-on and pull-off taper friction tests were also performed. There was no measurable fretting debris found… (More)
