ASTM  F2028-17
Standard Test Methods for Dynamic Evaluation of Glenoid Loosening or Disassociation
1.1 These test methods measure how much a prosthetic anatomic glenoid component rocks or pivots following cyclic displacement of the humeral head to opposing glenoid rims (for example, superior-inferior or anterior-posterior). Motion is quantified by the tensile displacement opposite each loaded rim after dynamic rocking. Similarly, these test methods measure how much a prosthetic reverse glenoid component rocks or pivots following cyclic articulation with a mating humeral liner. Motion is quantified by the magnitude of displacement measured before and after cyclic loading.

1.2 The same setup can be used to test the locking mechanisms of modular glenoid components, for example, disassociation of both anatomic and reverse shoulder components.

1.3 These test methods cover shoulder replacement designs with monolithic or modular glenoid components for cemented fixation as well as reverse glenoid components for uncemented fixation.
Extent of Recognition
Partial recognition. The following part(s) of the standard is (are) not recognized:
- Subclause 24.2.4 Procedure (number of cycles)
- Subclause X2.9 in APPENDIX X2 Rationale for Reverse Shoulder Glenoid Loosening/Disassociation Test (number of cycles)
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.

This standard is recognized in part because:

In regard to Procedure Subclause 24.2.4 (number of cycles) and Subclause X2.9 in APPENDIX X2 Rationale for Reverse Shoulder Glenoid Loosening/Disassociation Test: Current trends in usage and patient populations, such as discussed in references #2 and #3 below, provide medical device manufacturers considerations to support an appropriate number of cycles.
