Access from EThOS:
Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) wear particles have been implicated as one of the major causes of late aseptic loosening. Particles of a critical and volume promote an inflammatory response from macrophages, primarily. which leads to cytokine release and the resorption of bone at the bone-implant interface.
