BACKGROUND Bone cement implantation syndrome (BCIS) is characterised by hypoxia, hypotension and loss of consciousness occurring early after bone cementation. The haemodynamic perturbations during BCIS have not been extensively studied, particularly not in patients with femoral neck fracture. We evaluated the effects of cemented hemiarthroplasty, in these(More)
BACKGROUND Bone cement implantation syndrome (BCIS) is characterized by hypoxia, hypotension, and loss of consciousness occurring around the time of bone cementation. Using a recently proposed severity classification of BCIS, we estimated the incidence of and risk factors for BCIS and its impact on mortality in cemented hemiarthroplasty for femoral neck(More)
