They allow comparison of spinal implant constructs with different intended spinal locations and methods of application to the spine. By continuing to use our site, you accept our cookie policy. This test should be initially performed dry ambient room conditions for consistency.

ASTM F1717 Spinal Implant Static and Fatigue Test Equipment

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. They allow comparison of spinal implant constructs with different intended spinal f1177 and methods of application to the spine. Spinal injuries often occur due to rotation, dislocation, bending, and axial loading.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. This set-up should represent the clinical use, but available data in the literature are few.

Additionally fatigue tests g1717 employed to quantify the static and dynamic mechanical characteristics of different designs of spinal implant assemblies. Other mechanical variables, describing implant design were considered, and all parameters were investigated using a numerical parametric finite element model.

We propose to revise F in order to describe the anatomical worst case condition we found at L1 level: Subscribe to Our Newsletters. Have a question asttm conducting the test for this standard?

ASTM F – 15 Standard Test Methods for Spinal Implant Constructs in a Vertebrectomy Model

The maximum recommended frequency for this type of cyclic testing should be 5 Hz. Static and fatigue forces up to 25 kN 5, lbf Frequency ratings up to Hz Servohydraulic Small, portable footprint. Methods for three static load types and one fatigue test are defined for the comparative evaluation f1177 spinal implant assemblies.

Stress values were calculated by considering either the combination of the average values for each parameter or their worst-case combination depending on the spinal level. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Subscribe to Instron News!


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 axtm of rotation of the functional spine unit and the pedicular inclination with respect to the sagittal plane.

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.

Powered from a single-phase supply it requires no additional utilities for basic machine operation for example, pneumatic air, hydraulics, or water. Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor…. Spinal implant assemblies are designed to provide some stability to the spine while arthrodesis takes place.

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

The results obtained here cannot be used directly to predict in vivo performance. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Email addresses must contain the symbol. 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 mechanical tests are conducted in vitro using simplified load schemes.
