Combining ageing and wear to assess the durability of zirconia-based ceramic heads for total hip arthroplasty.

Abstract

The degradation of zirconia-based ceramic components for total hip arthroplasty (head and cup) has been the topic of many works. However, the correlation between what is measured in vivo and what is expected from in vitro simulations on hip simulators may be sometimes feeble, especially where zirconia component are concerned, mainly due to a lack of… (More)
