During the 2011 EFORT Congress in Copenhagen, many interesting topics relating to tribology in total hip arthroplasty were discussed during a special day devoted entirely to the subject. EFORT decided that, given the wide interest in these discussions, publication of the presentations would be warmly welcomed by all fellow professionals who were unable to attend. This book is the result. It provides detailed information on currently used articulating materials and their wear performance. Clinical outcomes are discussed, and important new frontiers are carefully considered. The book will be of interest both to novices who want to learn more about the field and to experienced orthopaedic surgeons wishing to keep abreast of the latest developments.
Karl Knahr completed his medical studies at the University of Vienna in 1971 and subsequently trained as an orthopaedic surgeon at the Orthopaedic University Clinic of Vienna. In 1988 he became Head of the 2nd Orthopaedic Department at the Orthopaedic Hospital, Vienna-Speising and in the following year he was appointed Professor of Ort...
