This post describes an adaptation of Gartner Hype Cycle on metal-on-metal hip replacements. It is very unlikely that MoM hip replacements will achieve the “Plateau of Productivity“. Therefore two other later stages are proposed with annotations. Reference 1. Harris WH. Osteolysis and particle disease in hip replacement. A review. Acta Orthop Scand. 1994 Feb;65(1):113-23. 2. […]

Mortensen et al. nicely sum up both pros and […]

There has been relative paucity in the literature regarding positive studies in MoM HRs. Some single surgeon and single center studies have been published, but in general, the study by Hellman […]
