Hip implants have successfully been employed since the 1900’s. With the development of the total hip arthroplasty (THA) in 1960 by Sir John Charnley (Mohamed N. Rahaman, 2007), Since then the development of wear resistant materials has been extensive and improved the life time of hip prosthesis. (V. Banchet, 2007) THA wholly reconstructs the hip joint and enables joint kinematics. Components include an acetabulum liner and cup and femoral head and neck. Common combinations included metal on plastic, metal on metal, and ceramic on ceramic head and cup compnents.
