Mechanical evaluation of adjunctive fixation for prevention of periprosthetic femur fracture with the Zurich cementless total hip prosthesis.


OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether cerclage wire or a lateral plate increases the peak-torque load to failure, compared to femora without adjunctive fixation, in femora implanted with Zurich Cementless stems. STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanical study. SAMPLE POPULATION Paired femora from adult dogs (n = 24) weighing 28-35 kg. METHODS Pairs of femora were… (More)
