ABSTRACT
The article suggests the bearing coating options available to patients with total knee replacements (TKRs) or total hip replacements. Surgeon Stuart B. Goodman said that dissolution of the bone, particulate disease and wear are the major concerns when it comes to TKR and hip replacement. Focusing on the problem of wear, he cited that this can easily be reduced by using more durable femoral components and polyethylene.
