Abstract

Wear is an important issue in hip implants. Excessive wear can lead to toxicity and other implant associated medical issues such as patient discomfort and decreased mobility. Since implant wear is result of contact between surfaces of femoral head and acetabulum implant, it is important to establish a model that can address implant surface roughness… (More)
