Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty

When 1 or both components of the prosthesis are loosened, a replacement will be mandatory. This is called a revision arthroplasty. There are several reasons for loosening of the prosthesis:

  • osteolysis (bone resorption), induced by polyethylene wear particles (aseptic)
  • infection (septic)
  • fracture (e.g. caused by a fall… )

Revision arthroplasty implicate more extensive surgery with less chance for excellent clinical results.

Introduction
Some metal-on-metal hip devices that are known to release chromium and cobalt metal ions have been shown to produce toxicological effects. BIOLOX®delta, however, also contains trivalent chro- mium ions, which randomly replace the trivalent aluminum ions in the alumina matrix. Despite being strongly bound to the alumina lattice, it has yet to be experimentally proven if the chromium ions are eventually released into the body. If BIOLOX®delta is completely biocompatible in terms of ion release, it could offer an excellent alternative to metal-based bearing couples.
