Strain in UHMWPE for orthopaedic use studied by Raman microprobe spectroscopy.


Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has been the most popular bearing material against both metal and ceramic counter-faces in total hip and knee joint replacements. Therefore, it is desirable to clarify the complex phenomena occurring both in vivo and in vitro, using highly sensitive analytical techniques. However, conventional analytical… (More)
