OBJECTIVE To test the initial stability of a newly designed partially cemented femoral stem in comparison with a fully cemented conventional stem. DESIGN An in vitro study to determine the interface motion between femoral stem and bone as a response to loading. BACKGROUND The aim of the new prosthesis design is a proximal load transfer by a defined partial cement fixation in the proximal femur region and a slim prosthesis stem in the distal region. Before a clinical study can be started… CONTINUE READING
