In the last two decades the performance of total hip replacements (THR) has constantly improved, thanks largely to advances in the field of material science and technology. Although contemporary devices are clinically very reliable, some problems still need to be addressed: the wear of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene components, the release of metal ions from metal-on-metal joints, the toughness of the ceramic cups and the possibility of squeaking for ceramic-on-ceramic couplings.
