Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
i) Male or female subjects, aged between 45 and 75 years inclusive.

ii) Subjects who are able to give voluntary, written informed consent to participate in
this investigation and from whom consent has been obtained.

iii) Subjects who, in the opinion of the Investigator, are able to understand this
investigation, co-operate with the investigational procedures and are willing to return to
the hospital for all the required post-operative follow-ups.

iv) Subjects with non-inflammatory arthritis of the hip who require a primary hip
arthroplasty and are considered by the Clinical Investigator to be suitable for a cemented
femoral component and an uncemented acetabular component.

v) Subjects who have a Charnley C classification

vi) Subjects who have undergone a contralateral hip replacement within past 6 months

vii) Subjects with a poorly functioning contralateral hip replacement or one which has been
identified as requiring revision

viii) The first hip replacement scheduled for subjects identified as requiring primary
bi-lateral hip replacements which will not be conducted simultaneously (i.e. on the same
day).

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to compare the performance and compare the wear characteristics
of two polyethylene cup liners, Marathon™ and Enduron™, in the treatment of patients with hip
joint disease requiring a total hip replacement. Patients who enter the study will be
randomly allocated to one of the polyethylene cup liners, Marathon™ or Enduron™ and will be
evaluated at regular intervals using clinical and x-ray assessments.
