Background: A comparative ex vivo study was performed of electronic percussive test values (PTVs) measured by the cabled and wireless electronic percussive testing (EPT) devices and to evaluate the intra- and inter-observer reliability of the wireless EPT device. Methods: Forty implants were inserted into the vertebrae and forty implants were inserted into the pelvis of a cow with a safe distance from each other. The implants were all 4.3 mm wide and 13 mm long from the same manufacturer. The PTV of each implant was measured by four different examiners using both EPT devices and compared. Additionally, the intra-observer and inter-observer reliability of the wireless EPT device was evaluated. Results: Statistically significant differences (P <.05) were observed between the PTVs made by the two EPT devices. The PTVs measured by wireless EPT device were found significantly higher than the cabled EPT device (P <.05) indicating lower implant stability. The intra-observer reliability of the wireless EPT device was evaluated as excellent for the measurements in type II bone; and good to excellent in type IV bone and inter-observer reliability was evaluated as fair-to-good in both of the bone types. Conclusions: Wireless EPT device measures PTVs higher than cabled EPT device indicating lower implant stability and its inter- and intra-observer reliability is good and acceptable.
