View Full Version : Cemented total hip arthroplasty

02-23-1998, 09:10 AM
French resident in orthopedic surgery, i look for expert advices and references
about the way of working the femur in cemented total hip arthroplasty.
What thickness of cancellous bone must be preserved ? Or does all this
spongious bone have to be removed ?
What the optimal thickness of the mantle of cement?
I'd like to know your opinion about this much debated question. Could you give
me as well some references ?
Thank you to answer.
Yours sincerly.
