Papers needed for symposium on knee replacement devices.
Press Release Summary:
July 17, 2009 - Scheduled for May 18, 2010, ASTM Symposium on Mobile Bearing Total Knee Replacement Devices will compare clinical results from mobile bearing knee devices with results from standardized mechanical testing to determine if standards adequately address real and perceived potential failure modes seen clinically. Call for papers seeks contributions related to data on clinical outcomes, failures, and retrievals, as well as clinical data relevant to bench performance as described in ASTM standards.

Papers Needed for ASTM International Symposium on Mobile Bearing Total Knee Replacement Devices
Press release date: July 15, 2009
- Mobile bearing knee tibial baseplate/ bearing resistance to dynamic disassociation;
- Mobile bearing knee tibial baseplate rotational stops;
- Dislocation, spin out, spit out;
- Determination of constraint for mobile bearing total knee replacements;
- Cyclic fatigue testing of metal tibial tray components for mobile bearing total knee joint replacements;
- Knee bearing (tibial insert) endurance and deformation under high flexion for mobile bearing knee replacements;
- Knee bearing (tibial insert) wear including backside wear;
- Contact area, contact pressure distribution for mobile bearing knee joint replacements; and
- Range of motion testing for mobile bearing knee joint replacements. To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit the online abstract submittal form at www.astm.org/f04symp510.htm and attach a 250-300 word preliminary abstract by Aug. 26, 2009. The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Symposium co-chairs Kathy Trier and A. Seth Greenwald will notify you by Nov. 1, 2009, of your paper's acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the presenter/author will be requested to submit a final camera-ready abstract several months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in a booklet at the symposium. Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Journal of ASTM International (JAI). JAI is an online, peer-reviewed journal for the international scientific and engineering community. You may access information about JAI at www.astm.org/JAI. Additionally, you may wish to review the new Web-based submission and peer-review site at http://jai.peerx-press.org. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for JAI are due online by May 18, 2010. Once the final selection of abstracts is approved, ASTM will send authors' instructions via e-mail. The author will receive a copy of his/her paper in a PDF. Additional information is available from symposium co-chairs Kathy Trier, Corin USA, Clearwater, Fla. (phone: 574-551-1368; firstname.lastname@example.org); and A. Seth Greenwald, Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, Cleveland, Ohio (phone: 216-523-7005; email@example.com). Established in 1898, ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions around the globe. Hannah Sparks
