ISO 7206-4:2002

Implants for surgery -- Partial and total hip joint prostheses -- Part 4: Determination of endurance properties of stemmed femoral components

This part of ISO 7206 specifies a test method for determining the endurance properties, under specified laboratory conditions, of stemmed femoral components of total hip joint prostheses and stemmed femoral components used alone in partial hip joints. It also defines the conditions of testing so that the important parameters that affect the components are taken into account, and describes how the specimen is set up for testing.

This part of ISO 7206 is applicable to prostheses that have a plane of symmetry, or have preformed anteversion or double curvature of the stem, and to prostheses designed for use in revision surgery.

This part of ISO 7206 does not specify methods of examining the test specimen; these should be agreed between the test laboratory and the party submitting the specimen for test.
