The use of long cemented stems for femoral impaction grafting in revision total hip arthroplasty.


BACKGROUND Following revision total hip arthroplasty involving femoral impaction grafting, fractures usually have occurred distal to a standard-length stem in an area of weakened bone that was left inadequately supported. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether the use of a long stem decreases the rate of femoral fracture after revision… (More)
