  • AbstractThe usage of cemented fixation for total hip replacement still exists for older people and patients having voids and irregular femurs. However, the huge difference between the mechanical properties of the cortical bone and bone cement led to inhomogeneous stress transfer in the stem/cement interface. Hence, an attempt was made in this direction to sort out the above mentioned problem by reinforcing the poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) bone cement with single walled nanotubes (SWNTs… CONTINUE READING
