Low wear, high stability - promises of success in a moderately cross-linked cup?


PURPOSE Cross-linking has proven effective in reducing polyethylene wear in total hip replacements. However, increasing the amount of cross-links will impair other mechanical properties of the polyethylene. The optimal threshold of crosslinking has still not been established. This led to the development of a moderately cross-linked (5 Mrad) cemented cup in… (More)
