Polyethylene debris-induced osteolysis and loosening in uncemented total hip arthroplasty. A cause of late failure.

Abstract

Uncemented total hip arthroplasty has proven to be an acceptable alternative to cemented total hip arthroplasty with good short-term results. With the elimination of the use of polymethyl methacrylate for component fixation, failure at the bone-cement interface, with resultant osteolysis and progressive loosening, was thought to be preventable… (More)
