In order to increase the lifetime of the total hip endoprosthesis, it is necessary to understand mechanisms leading to its failure. In this work, we address volumetric wear of the artificial cup, in particular the effect of its inclination with respect to the vertical. Volumetric wear was calculated by using mathematical models for resultant hip force,(More)
In vivo linear penetration in total hip arthroplasty (THA) exhibits similar values for 28mm and 32mm femoral head diameter with considerable variations between and within the studies. It indicates factors other than femoral head diameter influence polyethylene wear. This study is intended to test the effect of patient׳s individual geometry of(More)
