A Case for Ceramic-on-Ceramic Bearings

    Francesco Benazzo, MD, from Clinica Ortopedica e Traumatologica dell Universita di Pavia in Italy, has long been a proponent of using ceramic-on-ceramic articulations for total hip arthroplasty (THA).

    We asked him why he thinks ceramic is an appropriate material in THA, which patients in his practice receive ceramic-on-ceramic articulations, and what outcomes he has observed.
