Elfick, Alistair P. D. and Smith, Simon L. and Green, Sarah M. and Unsworth, Anthony (2002) A re-appraisal of wear features of acetabular sockets using atomic force microscopy. Wear, 253 (7-8). pp. 839-847. ISSN 1873-2577Full text not available from this repository.
The morphological and material features of 10 worn ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) acetabular sockets were assessed using atomic force microscopy (AFM) imaging of topography, stiffness and adhesion. Six of the sockets were simulator worn, four with a physiological gait cycle and two under linear motion. The remaining four sockets were explanted cemented joints.
