Contemporary highly cross-linked polyethylenes have become the most widely used alternative bearing surfaces in total hip replacement and may be paired with large diameter femoral heads (> 32 mm) in patients considered to be at high risk for dislocation. We report on a prospective series of 42 patients (45 hips) who had total hip replacement using large diameter cobalt-chrome femoral heads articulating with a highly cross linked polyethylene after a minimum of 3 years followup (mean 3.3 years… CONTINUE READING
