Ultrahigh Molecular Weight Polyethylene Workshop at the Society for Biomaterials

The Society for Biomaterials Meeting in St. Paul, MN, featured a half-day workshop on April 25, 2001, devoted to the latest mechanical and chemical characterization techniques for UHMWPE. It was chaired by Dr. Avram Allan Edidin. Powerpoint presentations for selected workshop speakers are now available for viewing in HTML format.

Polyethylene at the 47th Orthopedic Research Society Meeting

The Orthopedic Research Society Meeting, held at the Moscone Center, San Fransisco, CA, from February 25-28, 2001, featured a podium session of six talks devoted to UHMWPE, as well as two poster sessions devoted Implant Wear (11 Posters) and Polyethylene (20 Posters).

NIH/AAOS Wear Symposium

In October 2000, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the National Institutes of Health organized a symposium to address the problem of wear in total joint replacements. A PDF document summarizing recent research into the relationship between design, mechanics, materials, and wear was drafted by Drs. Edidin and Kurtz for reference use during the workshop breakout sessions. It has been made available on this web site solely due to possible interest on the part of other researchers. The summary only reflects the research and opinions of the authors.

Polyethylene 2001 Workshop

The 46th Annual Meeting of the Orthopedic Research Society featured a workshop on March 12, 2000, devoted to UHMWPE, entitled "Polyethylene 2001." The HTML and Flash format presentations of the workshop speakers are available for download.
