This is a retrospective review of 46 primary total hip arthroplasties using a first-generation highly cross-linked ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene liner (Crossfire; Stryker, Mahwah, NJ) with an average of 9-year follow-up. The purpose of this study was to measure linear penetration rate of first-generation polyethylene to determine if it maintains its wear resistance and fatigue strength over an extended period compared with conventional polyethylene. The mean (SD) total penetration was 0.339 (0.204) mm, and the mean (SD) penetration rate was 0.037 (0.022) mm/y. Our study demonstrated a 74% reduction in total penetration of highly cross-linked polyethylene when compared with historical controls using conventional polyethylene at an average of 9 years. Our results support the belief that highly cross-linked polyethylene does retain its wear resistance over an extended period.
