36mm Ceramic head for “difficult” cases
The heads of big diameter, like Mc Farrar, Ring and Muller, already appeared during the 60’s. At that time characterized by a metal — metal coupling, whose sizing generally spared heads from 32mm to 41mm, all the correlated hip joint reconstructions reported quite variable clinical outcomes.
