Cross-linked polyethylene has much less wear than conventional polyethylene and
can used in a more bone conserving thickness of 4 mm. We have used it for hip
resurfacing since 2001.
This study evaluated the effectiveness of a highly cross-linked polyethylene
acetabular component for hip resurfacing in patients under age 50. I posed 5… Read the rest

DynaMoM hip resurfacing device (Tornier) by J Girard, MD, MsC.
DynaMoM hip resurfacing device was introduced in France in 2008 and was first implanted at Lille Universitary Hospital by J. Girard, MD. Rationale for design The rational for the design was made according to clearance, the rugosity, the head diameter, the sphericity and the alloy process. DynaMoM design-included the extent of cement fixation, optimization of implant position, minimization of stress-shielding,
- Voluntary actions initiated to remove smaller size components and change Instructions for Use (IFU) following analysis of recent performance data
- No action required from patients; no change to current practice for patient follow-up care
- BHR continues to perform amongst the best hip replacements for the right patients
