The article reports on the results of research which was conducted in an effort to capture in vivo clicking and squeaking sound simultaneously with in vivo motion of the femoral head with the acetabular cup during weight bearing activities in patients who have had total hip replacements. Researchers wanted to find the reasons for the sound occurrences. Side effects that have been associated with total hip replacements are discussed.
