Abstract

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.
