Cemented Hip Replacement

For patients over 70 years and in patients with established osteoporosis the prosthesis stems are still cemented into the femur. The bone cement used for this purpose mainly consists of polymethylmethacrylate (abbreviated as PMMA), a synthetic material, which is well known as "Plexiglas". The advantage for older patients is that these stems do not need bony ingrowth because they are connected to the bone by the bone cement. Especially in patients with poor bone quality bony ingrowth can be problematic and early loosening of cementless prostheses are possible. For the durability of cemented prostheses especially the cementing technique and thus the experience of the orthopedic surgeon is crucial.
