Thermal Conductivity of Femoral Ball Strongly Influenced UHMWPE Wear in a Hip Simulator Study
Author(s): Bowsher JG, Clarke IC. Transactions of the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society. San Diego, CA: Orthopaedic Research Society; 2007:0278.
Our study showed that UHMWPE wear increased logarithmically with increasing thermal conductivity of the femoral ball (R2 =0.99), thereby provin… Read More »
