09/05/2002 - "It also provides guidelines for the development of polyethylenes with improved resistance to oxidation and wear, with particular relevance to estimation of the amount of crosslinking need- ed to potentially eliminate the clinical problem of osteolysis."
08/01/2011 - "Highly crosslinked and thermally treated polyethylenes were clinically introduced to reduce wear and osteolysis. "
01/01/2009 - "Crosslinked polyethylenes have been introduced to reduce wear and osteolysis. "
08/01/2008 - "Ion implantation may provide medical polyethylenes with excellent mechanical and tribological properties, helping to lower the risk of long-term osteolysis. "
01/01/2005 - "Because this process is predominantly a biologic response to particulate wear debris and/or corrosion products, alternative bearing surfaces and highly cross-linked polyethylenes have been developed in an attempt to reduce the incidence of wear-induced periprosthetic osteolysis. "
11/01/2007 - "This study confirms that annealing preserves mechanical properties better than remelting from both fatigue and fracture resistance points of view, and it remarks that a suitable selection of irradiation and stabilization conditions is needed to achieve optimal mechanical performances of ultra high molecular weight polyethylenes for each specific total joint replacement."
11/01/2012 - "Probabilistic assessment of fatigue initiation data on highly crosslinked ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylenes."
11/01/2007 - "Comparative fatigue behavior and toughness of remelted and annealed highly crosslinked polyethylenes."
05/01/1985 - "Hoechst RCH 1000 and Hercules Hi-Fax 1900 ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylenes have been compared, for the first time, in tests, including wear, fatigue and creep, relevant to artificial human joints. "
11/01/2012 - "Ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylenes (UHMWPE) showing wear resistance, oxidative stability and good mechanical performance go on being a relevant research area in biomaterials for total joint replacements, where fatigue happens to be a recurrent damage mode that needs to be investigated. "
02/01/2011 - "The low wear rates of crosslinked polyethylenes provide the potential to use larger diameters to resist dislocation. "
06/01/2006 - "Contemporary highly cross-linked polyethylenes have become the most widely used alternative bearing surfaces in total hip replacement and may be paired with large diameter femoral heads (> 32 mm) in patients considered to be at high risk for dislocation. "
|5.||Weight Loss (Weight Reduction)
12/01/2003 - "Accelerated aging did not affect the weight loss and oxidation levels of melted polyethylenes."
12/01/2003 - "Weight loss of the annealed polyethylene increased by 16-fold on accelerated aging and had three times higher oxidation levels than that measured in control polyethylenes after aging. "
