Drawn from the "Journal of Engineering in Medicine", this edited volume is a collection of papers representing research this field of medical tribology. The research into implant wear and replacement joints is of increasing importance as their use becomes widespread in the ageing populations of the developed world.

Wang et al; the importance of multidirectional motion on the wear of polyethylene, C.R. Bragdon et al; wear and morthology of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear particles from total hip replacements, P. Campbell et al; a three-axis hip simulation for wear and friction studies on total hip prostheses, V.O. Saikko; estimation of wear in total hip replacement using a ten station hip simulator, K. Brummitt and C.S. hardaker; effect on counterface material on the characteristics of retrieved uncemented cobalt-chronium and titanium alloy total hip replacements, K. Brummitt et al; wear in retrieved Charnely acetabular sockets, R.M.
