Title: Materials for total hip joint prostheses - biaxial flexural strenght of two ceramic systems
Keywords: total hip joint prostheses, materials, flexural strenght
Abstract: Total hip joint replacement is one of the most successful orthopedic surgeries in the last decade. Essential part of total hip joint prostheses is the mobile joint “hemispherical head – hemispherical cup”. Functional properties and durability of the implanted prosthesis in the human body depends crucially on the mechanical and tribological properties and characteristics of materials of articulated parts. Development and improvement of implant technology is inextricably linked with the development of new materials and in particular, new ceramic materials with improved mechanical characteristics. In the paper materials for hip prostheses and methods for evaluation of their mechanical characteristics are briefly reviewed. The results of preliminary studies on some characteristics of reinforced titanium ceramics are presented.
