    Features the most up-to-date research on ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) as used in medical and surgical devices.

    This new publication provides you with a thorough and overall understanding of UHMWPE. 11 comprehensive papers are divided into 3 sections on properties and characteristics; morphology; and sterilization and wear.

    Topics explored include: In-vivo wear rates, wear patterns, and new wear debris morphology • Relationships between the material’s consolidation quality and its clinical performance • Consequences of various packaging and sterilization techniques on its properties and performance • Effects of various post-consolidation techniques on its properties and performance.

    A valuable resource for orthopedic surgeons, product development engineers, senior chemists.
