Abstract null null Fretting crevice corrosion has become a major concern in orthopedic medical devices when passivating alloys are used alone or in combination. In this work the fretting crevice corrosion response of 316 L stainless steel was investigated when the counterface consisted of different alloys and the effects of potential and normal load were investigated. Fretting initiated crevice corrosion was observed in all stainless steel containing couples, but not in the Ti6Al4V_CoCrMo combin...

Fretting corrosion in modular orthopedic implants is a well-documented process that may be associated with adverse local tissue reactions, pain, and revisions. Engineering modular junction interfaces to withstand applied fretting motion without surface abrasion could prevent implant degradation and surface damage. Previous work on geometrically modified Ti-6Al-4V/CoCrMo interfaces with increased compliance showed reduced fretting currents and surface damage during short term, variable-load in vi...

Mechanically assisted corrosion (MAC) of metallic orthopedic alloys is a consequence of the use of modular devices where opposing metal surfaces are tightly mated and loaded at the taper junction. MAC processes are affected by material surface characteristics and local solution chemistry. During inflammation, active immune cells may generate reactive oxygen species (such as hypochlorous acid [HOCl]) adjacent to surfaces undergoing micromotion, which may affect the tribocorrosion behavior of an i...

Orthopedic device-related infections (ODRIs) are difficult to control due to microbial biofilm formation and associated with high-level resistance to conventional antibiotics. In many cases, the only treatment option for ODRI is explantation. Previous studies have shown that application of cathodic potentials at the metal surface can eradicate biofilms, and Mg and Mg-Ti particles have the same effect as cathodic potentials. This study investigated the effects of Mg and Mg-Ti particles on establi...

Corrosion of modular metal-on-metal acetabular tapers in total hip arthroplasty (THA) systems is often attributed to mechanically driven processes. Recent findings suggest that mechanically assisted crevice corrosion (MACC) might not be the dominant cause of corrosion in shell-liner tapers. This study aims to document and present the corrosion modes observed in metal-metal acetabular liners. Twenty-one retrieved wrought CoCrMo liners were examined using digital optical microscopy (DOM), scanning...

Electrosurgical techniques are used during surgery to cauterize, and their damaging effects have primarily been documented in terms of tissue necrosis, charring, and localized heat accumulation. Metallic implants as well as the surgical blade can experience incidental electrosurgical current arcing that results in the generation and transfer of melted metallic particles. This work examines the composition, particle size distribution, and chemical state of the melted alloy surfaces and particles ...

Synovial fluid is dynamic in vivo with biological components changing in ratio and size depending on the health of the joint space, making it difficult to model in vitro. Previous efforts to develop synthetic synovial fluid have typically focused on single organic-tribological interactions with implant surfaces, thus ignoring interplay between multiple solution components. Using a Taguchi orthogonal array, we were able to isolate the individual effects of five independent synovial fluid composit...

Abstract Wear and tribocorrosion of passive oxide film covered metals have been studied at the micro and macroscopic scales. Recent advances in nanotechnology have contributed to breakthroughs in understanding of fundamental friction and wear mechanisms of atomically thin 2D materials at the nanoscale. However, for metals and materials without ultra-flat surfaces, a gap in knowledge exists at or below a few nanometers, which is too small for continuum mechanics theories and experiments including...

Abstract Adhesion properties, which can vary with multiple factors, of silicone hydrogel contact lenses are important to their performance and comfort in the eye. In this study, we developed and used a simple, representative testing system and method to study the adhesive interactions of different silicone contact lenses (balafilcon A and senofilcon A) on polished titanium alloy and porcine whole eye cornea under dehydrating conditions. Adhesive interactions for senofilcon A varied by hydration ...
