    Twenty peer-reviewed papers provide contemporary insight into the evolving knowledge metal-on-metal (MOM) total and surface replacement hip systems employed as a remedy in the treatment of degenerative arthritis.

    Topics cover:
    • Characterization of adverse local tissue reactions
    • Wear/Corrosion: metallic product measurement in fluid and tissue samples
    • Analyses of retrieved MOM implants
    • In-Vitro testing of MOM implants under adverse conditions
