Effects of test sample shape and surface production method on the fatigue behaviour of PMMA bone cement

Article English OPEN
Sheafi, E.M.; Tanner, K.E.;
  • Subject: T1

There is no consensus over the optimal criterion to define the fatigue life of bone cement in vitro. Fatigue testing samples have been made into various shapes using different surface preparation techniques with little attention being paid to the importance of these var... View more
