About this book

During the 2010 EFORT Congress in Madrid, many interesting topics relating to tribology in total hip arthroplasty were discussed during a special day devoted entirely to the subject. So successful was the day, and such was the broad interest in the discussions, that EFORT decided that publication of all the presentations would be warmly welcomed by fellow professionals who were unable to attend. This book is the result. It includes detailed information on the different articulating materials and the wear to which they are subject. The various factors that contribute to bearing performance and control wear are thoroughly evaluated, and careful consideration is given to the technology and design solutions proposed with a view to producing low-wearing hip joints. This book will be of interest both to novices who want to learn more about the field and to experienced orthopaedic surgeons wishing to keep abreast of the latest developments.

Karl Knahr completed his medical studies at the University of Vienna in 1971 and subsequently trained as an orthopaedic surgeon at the Orthopaedic University Clinic of Vienna. In 1988 he became Head of the 2nd Orthopaedic Department at the Orthopaedic Hospital, Vienna-Speising and in the following year he was appointed Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Vienna. For more than a decade, Professor Knahr has been the Austrian National Delegate to SICOT (Société Internationale de Chirurgie Orthopédique et de Traumatologie), Treasurer of the Austrian Society for Orthopaedic Surgery, and Austrian National Delegate to EFORT. Since 2005 he has been a member of the EFORT Executive Committee.
