  • All biomaterials used for total joint surgery are subjected to wear mechanisms. Morse taper junctions of modular hip revision implants are predilection sites for both fretting and crevice corrosion, dissociation and breakage of the components. The aim of this study is to quantify wear and study metallurgical changes of Morse taper junctions of in-vitro and in-vivo loaded modular revision stems. Three modular revision stems (MRP-Titan, Peter Brehm GmbH, Germany) were loaded by a servohydraulic… CONTINUE READING
