The John Charnley Award: Highly crosslinked polyethylene in total hip arthroplasty decreases long-term wear: a double-blind randomized trial.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The use of highly crosslinked polyethylene (HXLPE) is now commonplace for total hip arthroplasty. Hip simulator studies and short-term in vivo measurements suggest that the wear rate of some types of HXLPE is significantly less than conventional ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). However, there are few long-term data to support its use. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The aim of this study was to measure the long-term steady-state wear of HXLPE compared with UHMWPE liners in a ...
