Polyethylene wear particulate has been implicated in osteolytic lesion development and may lead to implant loosening and revision surgery. Wear in total hip arthroplasty is frequently estimated from patient radiographs by measurement of penetration of the femoral head into the polyethylene liner. Penetration, however, is multi-factorial, and includes(More)
After total hip arthroplasty (THA), polyethylene acetabular liner creep occurs quickly and serves to increases head-liner contact area and decrease contact pressures. What effect these early changes in contact mechanics will have on the wear behavior of the articulation remains unclear, and hence, selection or modification of polyethylene materials for(More)
