Abstract [en]

  Wear and biological response to wear debrisof artificial joints remain the major concerns in total hip arthroplasty (THA) [1].Silicon carbide reinforced alumina, Al2O3-SiCw,can be considered as a candidate for hip implants due to its high hardnessand toughness, aswell as chemical inertness. In this study, thewear and friction properties of Al2O3-SiCw areinvestigated by pin-on-disc experiments, with Hank’s Buffered Salt Solution(HBSS) as lubricant. Comparisons with BIOLOX®delta,the most commonly used ceramic in THA, under the same test conditions are made as well.
