Hi,

We have an ongoing project in which we aim to make similar measurements.
However, our goal is not the intra cement pressures (as that can be highly
variable from point to point due to the non-homogeneity of the cement and bone-
cement interface, but the insertion forces applied to the prosthesis by the
surgeon and more importantly (and often overlooked) the holding forces (while
the cement sets). If you think we may have information of any use to your
application then let me know.


with best wishes
