BACKGROUND Resurfacing of the hip joint is experiencing a revival due to improvements in materials, design, and manufacturing techniques. Despite good midterm outcomes, the high early rate of failure and concerns about metal debris require a detailed morphological and wear analysis of retrieved resurfacing implants in order to understand failure mechanisms. METHODS A worldwide collection of hip resurfacing revision devices was initiated, and 267 components were received. Devices were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
