83 patients with primary hip osteoarthritis participated in this double blinded randomized trial to determine the effects of different surface bearings on total hip replacements. Patients were randomized to receive ceramic-on-metal (CoM) or metal-on-metal (MoM) bearings. The results suggest comparable functional outcomes between groups at 24 months and a trend towards lower levels of cobalt and ch...
