Increasing cross-linking has been shown in vitro and in vivo to improve markedly the wear resistance of ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). The reduction in the mechanical properties of polyethylene under certain methods used to produce cross-linking has been a concern, however. These reductions are known to result from the processes used to increase the cross-link density and could affect the device performance in vivo. We present a novel method of increasing the cross-link… CONTINUE READING
