The Bone & Joint Journal, 05/25/2012Jeffers JRT et al.
This systematic review of the literature summarises the clinical experience with ceramic–on–ceramic hip bearings over the past 40 years and discusses the concerns that exist in relation to the bearing combination. Loosening, fracture, liner chipping on insertion, liner canting and dissociation, edge–loading and squeaking have all been reported, and the relationship between these issues and implant design and surgical technique is investigated.
