  • Abstract Metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites have been employed in joint arthroplasty with ever increasing success since the 1960s. New materials to repair or replace human skeletal joints (e.g. hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, fingers) are being introduced as materials scientists and engineers develop better understanding of the limitations of current joint replacement technologies. Advances in the processing and properties of all classes of materials are providing superior solutions for… CONTINUE READING
