In March 2007 independent British surgeons published a report entitiled Incomplete seating of the liner with the Trident acetabular system, A CAUSE FOR CONCERN? Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery 2007 – British Volume, Vol 89-B, 291-295 by A. J. Langdown, et al. They found that it is difficult to place properly the Trident cup. The British surgeons suspected that the difficulty to place the Trident cup properly is caused by the fact “that the Trident shell deforms upon implantation, thereby preventing complete seating of the liner”. And they conclude “ We have identified a potential problem with the Trident ace-tabular shell when used in combination with its metal-backed ceramic liner”.
