Prediction of long-term polyethylene wear in total hip arthroplasty, based on early wear measurements made using digital image analysis.

Abstract

The capability to reliably predict long-term in vivo wear of polyethylene would be of great value for the early identification of problematic total hip designs. Formal quantitative estimates of long-term polyethylene wear were made from a series of 197 patients who had a total hip arthroplasty and who were followed for a minimum of 10 years; the estimates… (More)
