Graphite Lubricant in Metal Hip Implants Paves Way for Better Hip Implant Design, Study Shows

A lubricating layer made of graphitic carbon consequently forms in the joints of metal-on-metal hip implants, according to a study. This dense layer works more like an industrial lubricant than joint fluid. This discovery may aid researchers design longer-lasting metal-on-metal hips for osteoarthritis and other joint disorder therapy. Undertaking a hip replacement surgery is very […]
