Inferior survival of hydroxyapatite versus titanium-coated cups at 15 years.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Hydroxyapatite (HA) particles have long been suspected to disintegrate from implant surfaces, become entrapped in joint spaces of orthopaedic bearing couples, and start a cascade leading to progressive polyethylene (PE) wear, increased osteolysis, and aseptic loosening. We compared cup revision at 15 years' followup in a randomized group of… (More)
