80 patients (91 hips) undergoing total hip arthroplasty were randomly allocated to one of four bearing surfaces: cobalt-chrome (CoCr) & standard polyethylene, CoCr & cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), oxinium & standard polyethylene, or oxinium & XLPE, to compare long-term polyethylene wear rate between groups. Results indicated that the wear rate was significantly reduced with cross-linked polyeth...
