Abstract:The analysis of the bonding interface between hip prostheses and bone after functional use in animals was carried out. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy dispersive analysis (EDX), and Auger electron spectroscopy were used to evaluate the bonding interface. Various methods of postsacrifice sample preparation were used to evaluate the effect of such different methods on the analysis of the bonding interface. Comparison of the results with several rat tibia implant experiments is also presented.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
