... fatigue. Loads on the hip joint increase up to five times body weight during the heel-strike phase of walking. In addition, abnormal activity of the patient and/or deterioration of the fixation cement can result in increased stresses. Therefore, it is imperative that biocompatible materials of the highest...

... treatment, and faulty coating methods are the main reasons for failure. As a result of the analysis of various implant materials, the main reasons for failure are corrosive attack, manufacturing defects, and nonstandard-caused failures. Biocompatible inorganic materials, such as hydroxyapatite coating...

... the nature of the cyclic loading conditions these devices often encounter in the human body, fatigue is an often-encountered mode of implant fracture. The materials used in orthopedic implants can vary, but all must be biocompatible. Given this requirement and the strength levels often needed...
