Research Article: Cancer risk is not increased after conventional hip arthroplasty

Date Published: February 31, 2010 Publisher: Informa Healthcare Author(s): Tuomo Visuri, Pekka Pulkkinen, Pekka Paavolainen, Eero Pukkala. http://doi.org/10.3109/17453671003667150 Abstract Wear debris from conventional total hip arthroplasty (THA) induces chromosomal aberrations and DNA damage, which may promote cancerogenesis. A long latent period is required for solid tumors. We therefore re-analyzed a large THA cohort for cancer. … Continue reading Research Article: Cancer risk is not increased after conventional hip arthroplasty
