Aseptic loosening due to osteolysis in total hip replacement has been related to wear debris released from prosthetic components. Retrospective longterm observations of patients with the metal-on-metal prosthesis has shown long-term survivorship and good mechanical performance. Thus, the new and modified metal-on-metal prosthesis has been introduced on the market. Historical clinical data from the 1st generation metal-on-metal hip prosthesis may not be relevant for the 2nd generation of metal… CONTINUE READING
