1.1 These test methods cover the materials and methods for the static and fatigue testing of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies in a vertebrectomy model. The test materials for most combinations of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant components can be specific depending on the intended location and intended method of attachment.

1.2 These test methods are intended to provide a basis for the mechanical comparison among past, present, and future occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies. They allow comparison of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant constructs with different methods of application to the spine. These test methods are not intended to define levels of performance, since sufficient knowledge is not available to predict the consequences of the use of a particular device.

1.3 These test methods set out guidelines for load types and methods of applying loads. Methods for three static load types and two fatigue tests for the comparative evaluation of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies are defined.

1.4 These test methods establish guidelines for measuring displacements, determining the yield load, and evaluating the stiffness and strength of occipital-cervical or occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies.

1.5 It may not be possible to test some occipital-cervical and some occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal constructs in all test configurations.

1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.7  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.8  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
