Abstract
Background

Acetabular cementation during total hip

arthroplasty is considered difficult mainly due to the

appearance and anatomy of the acetabulum. Improved

cementation technique has been shown to improve the

longevity of acetabular components.

Method

We designed a ceramic model to investigate

the effect of varying the initial cement pressurization

and cup introduction times on the depth of cement penetration.

4 groups were prepared, 2 of which involved

varying initial cement pressurization and cup introduction

times. Group 3 involved initial cement pressurization

with no cup introduction, while group 4 involved

Method

We designed a ceramic model to investigate

and cup introduction times on the depth of cement penetration.

4 groups were prepared, 2 of which involved

varying initial cement pressurization and cup introduction

times. Group 3 involved initial cement pressurization

with no cup introduction, while group 4 involved

cup introduction with no prior cement pressurization.

Results and interpretation

Most cement penetration

occurred in the early pressurization phase, and we conclude

that a relatively early and longer cement pressurization

time and late cup introduction are positive factors

for increased cement penetration in the acetabulum

model. (Less)
