53 patients who were scheduled for total hip arthroplasty were randomized to have the procedure completed using either a highly-crosslinked polyethylene (HXLPE) liner or a conventional, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) liner. Patients were assessed on computed tomography for incidence and volume of osteolytic lesions over a minimum 12-year follow-up. Incidence for the development ...
