Abstract

Polyurethane (PU) wear debris generated by the knee motion machine (KMM) from an interpositional knee arthroplasty device were retrieved from the test solution and analyzed. Particle shape and size descriptors were compared to literature data for retrieved UHMWPE particles. The implants were tested in an enclosed bath of 50% bovine serum solution at 37±3° C. The wave pattern transverse to the sagittal plane was similar to that seen clinically for the PU-1 implant.
