In endoprosthetics alumina ceramic femoral heads have been established for many years and their outstanding wear characteristics are scientifically proven. The taper connection between the hard but brittle ceramic head and the metallic stem must be performed by the operating surgeon intraoperatively. Thereby it is left to the surgeon to interpret imprecise and strongly deviating instructions given from manufacturer to manufacturer. This study clarifies the enormously large variations of… CONTINUE READING
