Paper Title:
The Characteristics of the New Ceramic Material for Artificial Joints
  Abstract

A new zirconia-toughened alumina ceramic (JMM-ZTA) for a ceramic-on-ceramic hip replacement has been developed. The JMM-ZTA has a fracture toughness superior to zirconia, and the JMM-ZTA/JMM-ZTA combination has superior wear-resistant performance to alumina/alumina. Moreover, the JMM-ZTA shows an excellent crystalline phase stability. Therefore, the JMM-ZTA is believed to be useful for artificial hip prostheses.
