ASTM F1717 Testing of Spinal Constructs, Static, Fatigue, Torsion

Anatomical parameters depending on the spinal level were compared to published data or measurements on biplanar stereoradiography on 13 patients. The 55MT MicroTorsion system can be used when multiple revolutions are required. ASTM F covers the materials and methods for the static and fatigue testing of spinal implant assemblies in a vertebrectomy model. asfm

This set-up should represent the clinical use, but available data in the literature are few. Spinal Fixtures ASTM F – CP During normal patient activity, spinal constructs can be subjected to high in vivo loading that can result in catastrophic failure. Other mechanical variables, describing implant design were considered, and all parameters were investigated using a numerical parametric finite element model.

Repeating all or part of these test methods in simulated body fluid, saline 9 g NaCl per mL watera saline drip, water, or a lubricant should be considered. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Methods for three static load types and one fatigue test are defined for the comparative evaluation of spinal implant assemblies. Description Literature Contact Us During normal patient activity, spinal constructs can be subjected to high in vivo loading that can result in catastrophic failure.


The worst-case combination of parameters demonstrates that devices implanted below T5 could potentially undergo higher stresses than those described in the standard suggestions maximum increase of The effect of environment may be significant.

ASTM F – 18 Standard Test Methods for Spinal Implant Constructs in a Vertebrectomy Model

How can we help you? Loading is typically applied with a constant-amplitude, load-controlled sinusoidal waveform, running in excess of five million cycles.

We use cookies to improve your browsing experience. The test materials for most combinations of spinal implant awtm can be specific, depending on the intended spinal location and intended method of application to the spine.

Active view current version of standard. Check this box to receive pertinent commercial email from Instron focusing on products, upcoming events, and more!

The maximum recommended frequency for this type of cyclic testing should be 5 Hz. Simple static testing is able to evaluate the load required to result in spinal fracture. For the majority of spinal construct testing, ultra high molecular weight polyethylene UHMWPE blocks are astk rather than vertebrae to eliminate the variances that bone properties and geometry may introduce.

These test methods are not intended to define levels of performance, since sufficient knowledge is not available to predict the consequences of the use of a particular device. ASTM F tests include static compression asmt, tension bending, and torsion tests. The results can be used to compare asttm component designs in terms of the relative mechanical parameters. We are confident that we have what you are looking for. Preclinical evaluation of spinal implants is a necessary step to ensure their reliability and safety before implantation.

Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? Bluehill LE for Basic Testing. The ElectroPulsTM E Linear-Torsion is a state-of-the-art, all-electric test instrument designed zstm dynamic and static testing on a wide range of materials and components.

  ISO 13919-2 PDF

Cyclic testing is also performed in order to evaluate the amount of cycles it takes for fatigue failure to occur. Email addresses must contain the symbol. For application of torsional strain, we recommend any of our torsion tabletop testing systems. Install the anchors according to the manufacturer.

The results obtained here cannot be used directly to predict in vivo performance. The American Society for Testing and Materials reapproved F standard for the assessment of mechanical properties of posterior spinal fixators, which simulates a vertebrectomy model and recommends mimicking vertebral bodies using polyethylene blocks.

Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: The stress on the pedicular screw is significantly influenced by the lever arm of the applied load, the unsupported screw length, the position of the centre of rotation of the functional spine unit and the pedicular inclination with respect to the sagittal plane.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Service life testing of spinal constructs is critical as fatigue failure is more common than catastrophic failure.

Static and fatigue forces up to 25 kN 5, lbf Frequency ratings up to Hz Servohydraulic Small, portable footprint. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. The standard set-up represents quite well the anatomy of an instrumented average thoracolumbar segment.
