This research demonstrates that the torsional stiffness of a cemented highly polished double tapered femoral stem does not decrease following axial subsidence under cyclic loading. Additionally the Exeter stem regains high torsional stiffness following explantation/ re-implantation as it was found that debonding did not have a detrimental effect on the performance of the stem under cyclic and torsional loads.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
