STUDY DESIGN A basic science study monitoring changes in the curvature of hand contoured commercially pure titanium (CPTi), titanium-aluminum-vanadium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V), and stainless steel (SS) rods maintained at different temperature conditions. OBJECTIVE To quantify changes in rod-shape at temperatures representative of those used in clinical practice. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The shape of implanted rods can be displaced due to thermo-mechanical properties of the materials. Warmer… CONTINUE READING
