Surface modifications and oxidative degradation in MPC-grafted highly cross-linked polyethylene liners retrieved from short-term total hip arthroplasty.

Abstract

Highly cross-linked polyethylene (HXLPE) hip liners grafted with 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) on their bearing surfaces have recently been commercialized as components of a new generation of artificial hip joints, while improvements in wear resistance and biocompatibility were reported based on in vitro studies. The present study aimed at… (More)
