Cemented Total Hip Replacement Arthroplasty

The use of cement in total hip replacement arthroplasty has long controversial. However, since the 1980s, osteolysis has occurred with high frequency in cementless total hip replacement arthroplasty, and has been a significant cause for loosening. Recently, a cemented femoral stem has been frequently used because of improvements in cement techniques, materials for joint arthroplasty, design, etc. Also, the use of an acetabular cup with cement seems desirable where indications are for a revision procedure or where there is an aged patient with severe osteoporosis, and where the patient requires a broad bone graft due to an acetabular bone defect. The purpose of this article was (i) to review how to fix an acetabular cup with cement and a femoral stem in current hip replacement arthroplasty procedures and (ii) to review possible directions for further development.
