Core Tip In this paper, the biotribology of hip implants is described at different levels, from the more general definitions of friction, lubrication and wear and from some basic equations, to clinical data of different implants. The topic is presented both qualitatively and quantitatively, which we believe is an original approach for a review of this kind. Some simple mathematical tools are provided, which can also be useful for non-specialists to better understand the matter and to deal with simple tribological problems. Finally, the trends of artificial hip joints over the last ten years are discussed on the basis of tribological concepts. Finally such elements are used to describe the trend of artificial hip joints in the last ten years, which provide some interesting indications.
