Title:
New method for determining in vitro structure stiffness of ceramic acetabular liners under different impact conditions. 
Abstract:
Increasing both patient mobility and prosthesis life span requires improvements in the range of motion and wear behavior of the liner. With the use of new composite alumina-zirconia ceramic materials, the same stability of the liner can be achieved at lower wall thickness than it is possible with alumina-only materials. The aim of this study was developing a method for determining the in vitro structure stiffness of ceramic acetabular liners against impact stresses. The first trials were perform...    »
