Abstract

Debate remains with regard to the best fixation method for total hip arthroplasty. Much of the argument supporting cementless fixation has been based upon the failure of cement fixation with earlier designs and surgical techniques. There are extensive published data supporting the clinical efficacy and durability of cement fixation. Recent meta-analyses support superior results of cement fixation when compared to cementless fixation in large subsets of patient populations.
