Abstract: Three resins which include poly (methyl methacrylate), surgical Simplex P, and ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene were selected to be evaluated as candidate systems for a polymer based composite for hard tissue prosthesis. Characterization of the mechanical behavior of these polymers in different environments including in vitro and in vivo storage was accomplished. As a result, conclusions were made as to which material maintained the least amount of mechanical variance as influenced by environmental effe…
