New Report Indicates VERILAST™ Technology From Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics has Lowest Revision Rate Among all Hip Replacement Materials
Date:12/2/2010

on the most technologically advanced material for this segment."

Studying the performance of OXINIUM Oxidized Zirconium against other bearing surfaces in a large patient group is now possible because the 2010 edition of the patient registry marks the first time the Australian Orthopaedic Association has tracked "Ceramicized Metal/Polyethylene" as a distinct category of bearing surface materials. OXINIUM material is a metal alloy that undergoes a proprietary heating process, transforming its surface into a hard, smooth ceramic that is 4,900 times more resistant to scratching than the traditionally used metal alloy, cobalt chrome. The underlying alloy retains its original properties, giving the implant the strength of metal, but the improved wear performance of a ceramic. It is 20-percent lighter than cobalt chrome, and because it doesn't contain detectable amounts of nickel like cobalt chrome does, it is considered hypoallergenic and safe for patients with metal allergies.

Smith & Nephew recently introduced VERILAST™ Technology, which is the combination of OXINIUM material and a unique cross-linked polyethylene formula. This bearing couple has been shown in laboratory tests to reduce hip implant wear by up to 98-percent(2) when compared to cobalt chrome and conventional polyethylene. In April 2010, Smith & Nephew announced the results of an unprecedented laboratory test on the use of VERILAST™ Technology with its LEGION™ Primary Knee System, which showed that it is expected to provide performance for 30 years of typical physical activity.

The results of this in-vitro wear simulation testing have not been proven to quantitatively predict clinical wear performance.  Also, a reduction in total polyethylene wear volume or wear rate alone may not result in an improved clinical outcome as wear particle size and morphology are also critical factors in the evaluation of the potential for wear mediated osteolysis and associ
