Three commonly used bone cements were inserted into tibiae from human cadavers to investigate techniques for optimal intrusion with manual pressurization. In each tibia the medial plateau was cleansed by pulsating water lavage, and the lateral plateau was cleansed by syringe only. Acrylic was inserted at one-minute intervals through four minutes, at which time intrusion decreased steeply. Intrusion was superior in bone prepared by pulsating lavage. Mixing the acrylic for no longer than three… CONTINUE READING
