Irrigating solutions are commonly used in the preparation of bony surfaces before total joint replacement components are cemented. Using an experimental cemented arthroplasty model, metal pseudo-prostheses were cemented to a cadaveric bone surface prepared with a specific irrigating solution. A tension load was then applied to the prosthesis until failure… CONTINUE READING
