This article is an account of a procedure to accelerate polymerization of polymethylmethacrylate during total hip arthroplasty by preheating the stem of the femoral prosthesis. The increased temperature is shown to have a definite beneficial effect with regard to accelerated polymerization. Experimental investigations are presented to verify this supposition.
