There is currently much discussion about the most clinically relevant testing methods for evaluating total hip replacements. This study examined the effect of different swing phase loads, including microseparation, on the wear, friction, and wear particles of metal-on-metal (MOM) hip replacements. MOM hip replacements were tested for 5 million cycles with the use of a hip simulator; prostheses were tested with a low (100-N) and ISO (280-N) swing phase load, and under microseparation conditions… CONTINUE READING
