  • Abstract
  • Primary ExaminerRonald L. Frinks Attorney, Agent, or Firm-Owen, Wickersham & Erickson [5 ABSTRACT This prosthesis for replacement of a skeletal hinged joint comprises a unitary member of elastomer having a central hinge portion with a stem at each end, the stems being inclined with respect to each other.

  • tensile
  • The hinge has a web portion lying between thicker end portions adjoining the stems, to provide uniplanar hinging movement, the angle of inclination lying in this plane and providing a suitable normal rest position for the joint where the prosthesis has no restorative tensile or compressive forces.

  • endoprostheses
  • This specification covers the design and dimensional requirements for metallic, ceramic, and polymeric mating bearing surfaces used in total hip joint prostheses and hip endoprostheses, more specifically, hip joint replacements of the ball-and-socket configuration. (astm.org)

  • compressive forces
  • The coupling to the compression transmitting member is such that only compressive forces are coupled to that member from the joint member. (google.com)
  • bacteraemia
  • OBJECTIVES : Current international and national prophylactic antibiotic regimens have been analysed in respect of the prevention of bacteraemia after dental and surgical procedures and therefore of joint prosthesis infection. (up.ac.za)
  • RESULTS : The general rationale for the use of antibiotic prophylaxis for surgical (including dental) interventions, is that those procedures may result in a bacteraemia that may cause infection in joint prostheses. (up.ac.za)
