During total hip replacement (THR) many supporting structures for the retention of the femoral head within the acetabulum are removed. Previous studies have determined that this lack of supporting structures leads to separation of the femoral head within the UHMWPE liner. During the relocation phase the femoral head impacts with the liner creating high stress conditions that may contribute to premature polyethylene wear and instabilities.
