Abstract


In Total Joint Replacement (TJR), ceramic surfaces offer a major benefit of drastically reduced wear rates and excellent long-term biocompatibility with the bone tissue. Among the available ceramic materials for load bearing bio-implant applications, silicon carbide is superior for its better biocompatibility, which can increase the longevity of prosthetic joints. The major cause of revision surgery and implant failure is Osteolysis (aseptic loosening of the prosthetic joint). The product of bearing wear, microscopic particulate debris in the joint space leads to implant loosening. Prosthetic joint mainly consists of acetabular cup, acetabular lining and femoral head. The best material for manufacturing acetabular cup is nickel

Author Keywords: Prosthetic joint, Wear rate, Aseptic loosening, Silicon Carbide, Nickel base alloy.
