This publication describes the historical past and houses of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) utilized in man made joints by means of describing its houses and reviewing the newest medical results.
* the main up to date details at the homes of UHMWPE
* counseled through Ticona - the world's prime producer of UHMWPE for scientific use
* an incredible 'installed base' of over 1.4 million techniques every one year
* UHMWPE has been utilized by orthopedists for over forty years, but its houses and function in situ are nonetheless now not good understood
