Link ANALYSIS OF CEMENT PENETRATION IN HIP RESURFACING
R.M. Gillies; J.H. Gan; G.M. Hawdon; and S.J. McMahonMay 2007Introduction: Prevalence of femoral neck fracture in
resurfacing hip arthroplasty continues to question if
failure is technique-related or due to the inherent bone
quality. This study aimed to correlate cement penetration
profile during resurfacing hip with inherent bone density.
The hypothesis is that osteoporotic bone is unable to
support the prosthesis leading to fatigue failure.Methods: Fifteen patients scheduled for total
