A patient who has received a total hip arthroplasty that includes a MicroStructured Omnifit acetabular component should be monitored frequently for radiographic signs of locking system complications. In this study, the mean liner wear rate was significantly higher in group 2. Inadequate polyethylene thickness in this group was implicated as the major cause of excessive polyethylene wear.
