A novel ultra high molecular weight polyethylene-hyaluronan microcomposite for use in total joint replacements. II. Mechanical and tribological property evaluation.

Abstract

The mechanical and tribological properties of a new biomaterial, an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene-hyaluronan (UHMWPE-HA) microcomposite, were investigated in this article, which is Part II of a two-part study. Part I presented the synthesis and physical/chemical characterization of the novel microcomposites. The microcomposite was developed for… (More)
