8 The generation of particulate debris at the taper junction of total hip replacements (THRs), 9 can cause failure of the artificial hip. The taper surfaces of femoral heads and trunnions of 10 femoral stems are generally machined to a certain roughness to enhance fixation. However, 11 the effect of the surface roughness of these surfaces on the fixation, wear and consequently 12 clinical outcomes of the design is largely unknown. In this study, we asked whether a micro13 grooved trunnion… CONTINUE READING
