BACKGROUND: Theoretically, the motion of a bipolar hip prosthesis is most likely to occur at the inner joint if the frictional coefficients are equal at both surfaces. However, many studies have suggested that most motion occurs at the outer joint. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed an analysis of motion in a cadaveric bone model and in 50 patients during fluoroscopic examination, to determine how the motion is distributed between the two joints and what factors contribute to this distribution. RESULTS: The motion distributions varied widely between the patients. However, there was a relative pre-ponderance (63-90%) of outer motion in all directions of leg movement in addition to a persistent coexistence of motion at both joints in 44 of 50 patients. This preponderance of outer motion was the result of an early impingement of the acetabular cup and structural differences between the two joints. INTERPRETATION: An adjustment of the positive eccentricity and a decrease in the frictional torque of the inner joint as a result of better lubrication and smoothness can be expected to improve the motion distribution, thus reducing the amount of acetabular erosion.
