Abstract [en]

Although various surface and interface characterization methods have been applied to study the physical wear, corrosion and implant surface interactions with biological environments, presently - in metal on metal (MOM) hip implant- the local and systematic effects of interaction between metal surfaces and protein rich lubrication in body are poorly understood. Materials and Methods: Cobalt-chromium-molybdenium (CoCrMo) alloys have been used in MOM implants extensively. In the present study the samples were immersed in four different biological lubricants (Human serum, synovial fluid, MEM and distill water) for 10 min, 1 hr, and 5 days of immersion and then studied by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectroscopy (ToF-SIMS). XPS determined the chemistry of elements located whit in the top few nanometers of materials. Friction and wear behavior of CoCrMo substrate in different biological lubricatin were also studied. Results and discussion: Spectra from P2p3/2, O1s, Ca2p3/2, C1s and N1s were collected. Metallic substrates behaved differently when immersed in the same lubricant for different time intervals. The four lubricants reacted differently with metallic surfaces. Larger calcium deposits occurred in supersaturated physiological solutions. Deposition of calcium phosphate was different on CoCrMo alloys depending on the lubricant and the immersion period. Specimens immersed in synovial fluid gave thinner oxide layers and lower calcium phosphate deposits. For all specimens, water immersion resulted in thicker oxide layer. Synovial fluid gave lowest coefficient of friction when distill water gave the highest value. Generally wear was higher for disc in comparison to the pin (in the pin on plate test).
