- In traditional hip replacement, the diseased ball along with the top part of the thigh bone and the surface of the socket are removed and replaced with artificial components. These can be fixed either with a type of glue known as bone cement or without any similar material. The bone is allowed to absorb the specially made components.
- In surface replacement which is meant for younger patients, very minimal bone is removed from the thigh bone.
Therefore a well performed hip replacement with this material should last any one’s life time. In the traditional metal on plastic, the plastic wears slowly over time, and as the plastic wears out small particles of plastic debris develop. This triggers response by the body which can lead to loosening of the joint implant over time. This causes pain and leads on to revision surgery. In ceramic hips the amounts of wear is negligible. Another new material which has recently been introduced is oxinium, which also has superior wear properties compared to traditional metal alloys.
