Adverse reactions to metal debris after total hip arthroplasty are an increasing concern. Metal debris is released from the metal-on-metal articulation itself as well as from the head-neck taper. There is also a risk of corrosion at the neck-stem junction. Some stems were recalled because of high revision rates as a result of metal debris from the modular junction. We conducted a retrospective analysis of the 3-year to 8-year clinical and radiographic outcomes of a consecutive cohort of patients who underwent cementless total hip arthroplasty using a modular hip prosthesis with ceramic-on-ceramic bearings.

The ideal method and implant to perform total hip arthroplasty (THA) is still a debated topic. Ceramic on ceramic (CoC) bearings have favourable wear properties, but squeaking has been reported as an ...
The color of all-ceramic restorations is one of the main criteria to achieve esthetical success. Many factors such as ceramic thickness, condensation techniques, firing temperature, and numbers can af...
The purpose of this study was to compare the friction of two types of polycrystalline ceramic brackets before and after aging.
Oxide ceramic materials underpin a wide variety of technologies. However, the inherent fragility of these materials limits their use in emerging fields like wearable electronics and soft energy storag...
Using a new ceramic head with a titanium adapter sleeve offers the possibility of maintaining a well fixed stem when conducting cup revision of a total hip arthroplasty. The aim of this study is to te...
Methods to reduce the revision rate of total hip arthroplasties (THAs) because of wear-related issues are important to examine, particularly because younger patients have a disproportionat...
Comparison of the functional result and speed of rehabilitation between two types of hip prostheses: primary ceramic-on-ceramic total hip replacement versus metal-on-metal hip resurfacing.
A retrospective consecutive population of patients treated with cementless total hip arthroplasty with ceramic-on-ceramic bearing surfaces due to post-traumatic osteoarthritis due to aceta...
Polyethylene wear debris from metal-on-polyethylene articulations are one of the main causes of periprosthetic bone loss and non-infectious loosening in total hip arthroplasty. Ceramic art...
The purpose of this study is to monitor the performance of the Pinnacle™ Cup with a ceramic-on-ceramic bearing combination in the treatment of patients with hip joint disease requiring a...
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.
Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).
A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.
The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
