Intermediate-term trends in serum levels of metal ions after hip resurfacing arthroplasty


BACKGROUND The potential risks associated with hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) are controversial and underestimated. The aim of this study was to explore intermediate-term trends for the levels of cobalt (Co), chromium (Cr), and molybdenum (Mo) ions after HRA. METHODS Forty patients who underwent HRA from October 2005 to December 2010 were recruited to… (More)
