Research Facts
This titanium alloy was originally developed for the aircraft industry; the cup would have been used with a polyethylene insert; the holes were used to screw into the acetabulum when there was a concern about its stability; the hole at the bottom of the cup was used to make sure that the component had been hammered right against the bone; the rough exterior finish was for a better grip.
