Contents Basics in Tribology: Tribology of Hip Prostheses -- Biomechanics of Hip Arthroplasty -- Ceramic Hip Replacements: Wear behaviour affects the outcome -- a tribological and clinical approach -- Tribology of metal-on-metal bearings -- Highly cross-linked polyethylenes. Ceramic articulations : Are noisy ceramic-on-ceramic hips linked to periprosthetic bone?- Noise emissions in total hip replacements, with an emphasis of ceramic-on-ceramic and ceramic-on-metal bearings and different articular sizes -- Head size in relation to noise occurrence in ceramic-on-ceramic bearings -- The squeaking phenomenon in ceramic-on-ceramic bearings. Metal articulations: Ceramic surface engineering of the articulating surfaces effectively minimizes wear and corrosion of metal-on-metal hip prostheses -- Retrieval wear analysis of metal-on-metal hip resurfacing implants revised due to pseudotumours. Polyethylene articulations: Polyethylene wear in total hip arthroplasty for suboptimal acetabular cup positions and for different polyethylene types -- Wear analysis of highly cross-linked polyethylene in total hip arthroplasty -- Rates of osteolysis in well-functioning alumina-on-highly cross-linked polyethylene bearing cementless THA in patients younger than fifty with femoral head osteonecrosis -- Osteolysis and aseptic loosening: Cellular events near the implant. Miscellaneous: Cushion form bearings in total hip arthroplasty -- A novel model to predict wear in an uncemented hip replacement with a ceramic on polyethylene bearing -- Comparative in vivo wear measurement of conventional and modern bearing surfaces in total hip replacements by the use of POLYWARE® computerized system -- Tribology of knee replacements: Low conforming polyethylene fixed bearing knees
Summary During the 2010 EFORT Congress in Madrid, many interesting topics relating to tribology in total hip arthroplasty were discussed during a special day devoted entirely to the subject. So successful was the day, and such was the broad interest in the discussions, that EFORT decided that publication of all the presentations would be warmly welcomed by fellow professionals who were unable to attend. This book is the result. It includes detailed information on the different articulating materials and the wear to which they are subject. The various factors that contribute to bearing performance and control wear are thoroughly evaluated, and careful consideration is given to the technology and design solutions proposed with a view to producing low-wearing hip joints. This book will be of interest both to novices who want to learn more about the field and to experienced orthopaedic surgeons wishing to keep abreast of the latest developments
