Survivorship of total hip arthroplasties (THAs) has been linked to penetration of the femoral head into the polyethylene acetabular cup and to polyethylene wear. The activity level of patients with THAs is considered to be an important factor affecting wear, and the purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between activity as recorded by pedometers and cup penetration. The measurement of daily activity levels of normal subjects and THA patients of various ages are discussed in… CONTINUE READING
