Abstract
In recent years polycrystalline alumina ceramics have been widely used as bioceramic implants in various orthopaedic applications in western countries. Alumina ceramics have been proved to be more biocompatible, resistant to corrosion and abrasion over conventional metals and, therefore, higher durability of the implants is envisaged. The present paper deals with the development of ceramic heads for hemi-hip prosthesis implants which have been implanted to 18 different human patients. Physical and mechanical characteristics and biocompatibility of these ceramic heads have been examined in short term clinical studies. The study revealed no abnormal clinical effect on the patients after 2 years of implantation.
