On the establishment of number-size distributions of wear debris from artificial hip joints with aerosol physics techniques
Aseptic loosening is the major cause for revision surgery of knee and hip arthroplasties, whereat wear is a common cause. The characterization of wear particles in terms of number and size is essential for the study of their biological effects on cells and indica- tion the need for possible revision surgery of artificial joints. The purpose of this study was to develop an efficient automated diagnostic method for number-size distribution of wear debris. In order to do so, metal debris wasdoi:10.25365/thesis.35090 fatcat:zwat2g6offgjbagtxp7paq2pcu
