From: Host-specific factors affect the pathogenesis of adverse reaction to metal debris

Histology between sides Symmetrical Asymmetrical P-value
Macrophages 9.0 18.7 0.40
Lymphocytes 18.0 12.7 0.89
Necrosis 32.0 12.7 0.35
Plasma cells 16.0 5.3 0.24
Diffuse lymphocytes 16.0 6.3 0.48
Germinal centers 15.7 23.0 0.71
Granulomas 15.35 16.1 0.70
  1. Median differences in total wear volumes between the sides in patients with symmetrical histological findings versus patients with asymmetrical histological findings. Only patients with complete wear data are included (n = 17)
