Pullout Resistance of Bone Screws

 

Describes the method to determine the axial pullout strength of a medical bone screw from a bone-analogue material. The axial force applied during this test method may not be representative of the pullout resistance encountered clinically. This test method can be modified based on the materials being testing and the intended application of the device.
