Paper Title:
Hydroxyapatite Ceramic Hip Survey Alumina on Alumina Bearings
  Abstract

To reduce osteolysis and loosening, alumina bearings in hip arthroplasty have been used in Sunderland since 1991. This consecutive series demonstrates the results which have been most rewarding. However, ceramic implant fractures have been encountered but these probably represent less than meticulous operative technique. The results are published and the complications discussed together with advice to reduce the incidence of implant failure.
