53 patients (54 hips) scheduled for total hip arthroplasty were randomized to either a highly cross-linked polyethylene (HXLPE) or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) liner. A total of 25 patients (11 HXLPE; 14 UHMWPE) were available at a minimum of 12 year follow-up. Computed tomography (CT) was used to assess incidence and volume of osteolysis, and radiostereometric analysis (RSA) ...
