The life span of a total hip prosthesis is one of the main points on which the long-term success of arthroplasties depends. It is, by now, widely recognized that hip arthroplasty failure is mainly due to the aseptic loosening resulting from the presence of wear debris forming at the contact interface between the femoral head and the cup of the acetabulum… CONTINUE READING
