Title (EN) PROSTHETIC DEVICES EMPLOYING OXIDIZED ZIRCONIUM SURFACES CONTACTING SURFACES OF CROSS-LINKED POLYETHYLENE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS PROTHETIQUES UTILISANT DES SURFACES DE ZIRCONIUM OXYDE EN CONTACT AVEC DES SURFACES DE POLYETHYLENE RETICULE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Orthopedic implants which includes the components of zirconium or zirconium-based alloys having surfaces coated with oxidized zirconium or alternatively, other orthopedic implants comprising abrasion resistant surfaces contacting surfaces of crosslinked polyethylene are disclosed. Such implants provide low friction, highly wear resistant coatings especially useful in artificial joints, knee joints, elbows, etc., but also useful in other implant devices as well.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des implants orthopédiques qui comprennent des éléments de zirconium ou d'alliages à base de zirconium dont les surfaces sont revêtues de zirconium oxydé ou encore, d'autres implants orthopédiques comprenant des surfaces résistant à l'abrasion en contact avec des surfaces de polyéthylène réticulé. Ces implants présentent peu de frottement, des revêtements à haute résistance à l'usure qui conviennent particulièrement pour des articulations artificielles, des genoux, des coudes etc., mais qui conviennent aussi pour d'autres dispositifs d'implant.
