abstract

  • The results of our study provide relevant data to orthopaedic surgeons deciding on the use of a larger articulation in a metal-on-polyethylene bearing. A larger head diameter should not be considered a detriment to device survival when an HXLPE liner is used. However, efforts to force the use of a large-size implant appear unsupported, as similar survivorship was observed for all head diameter groups.
