Deficient cement mantles may be detrimental with regard to long-term outcome of cemented femoral stems. We performed a cadaver study on 48 left femora with 4 different stem designs (1 anatomic, 3 straight) to study the influence of stem design, centralizer, and femur type on cement mantle thickness. A radiographic and microradiograhic analysis was done. Overall, 88% of stems were aligned within 1 degrees of neutral in the frontal plane. In Gruen zones 1 through 7, we measured 24 thin cement… CONTINUE READING
