In this study the authors investigated the results of different designs of cementless THRs using ceramic/ceramic components. The authors analyzed the clinical results taking into account the age of the patients and of the type of implants used and also developed some basic considerations with regard to the interaction between AI2O3 ceramics and human tissue.
