Abstract

The stability of total joint prostheses depends largely on the strength of the tissue-implant interface. At present, there are three techniques that are commonly used for estimating interfacial strength: the push-out test, tensile test, and a fracture mechanics approach. Because no standard test methodology has been established to evaluate the interfacial strength of tissue-biomaterial interfaces, researchers currently choose test techniques based primarily on convenience. A comparison of the three techniques in terms of their sensitivity to specimen configuration variables, such as size, material combinations, and dimensions is presented to determine which method is more effective.
