Highly cross-linked polyethylene bearings showed low revision rate, high survivorship after THA

Total hip arthroplasty performed with first-generation annealed highly cross-linked polyethylene bearings in young, active patients showed 97% survivorship at 10 years and a low revision rate for wear-related failure.

Researchers identified 91 patients who underwent 112 total hip arthroplasty THA) procedures between 1999 and 2003 with an average University of California Los Angeles Activity Score of 8 and a mean age of 53 years.
