Please interpret the results with caution as trials may be in progress and select results may have been presented.
50 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) were randomized to undergo THA with either a metal-on-polyethylene (MPE) bearing with a titanium shell or a metal-on-metal (MoM) bearing with an all-cobalt chrome shell. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of these two types of modular neck systems on serum ion levels. Results at 2 years indicated that the MoM group had significantl...
