[Effect of integrated distance studs on cement thickness of implanted PE-acetabulum cups--experimental in vitro studies for improved cementing technique].

Abstract

Variations in cement thickness between PE cups and acetabular bone are biomechanically unfavourable, and may contribute to prosthetic loosening. Integrated distance studs should in the first instance, prevent local thinning of the cement. In an experimental study we compared the thickness of the cement mantel of implanted PE cups without such studs. In the… (More)
