The reason for revision of primary total hip arthroplasty is quoted as aseptic loosening in 60.6% of cases between 1979 and 2003 in the Swedish National Hip Arthroplasty Registry. Much research effort has been directed toward enhancing the bone-cement interface of total joint arthroplasties, in an attempt to reduce this complication. Haemostatic agents have been popularized as effective means of retarding the development of potentially harmful debris interposition adjacent to, and blood… CONTINUE READING
