Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing patients demonstrate hip biomechanics closer to normal in comparison to total hip arthroplasty during gait. However, it is not clear how symmetric is the gait of hip resurfacing patients. Biomechanical data of 12 unilateral metal-on-metal hip resurfacing participants were collected during gait at a mean time of 45months (SD 24) after surgery. Ankle, knee, hip, pelvis and trunk kinematics and kinetics of both sides were measured with a motion and force-capture… CONTINUE READING
