MODERN CEMENTING TECHNIQUE
Helping to improve the survivorship of orthopaedic implants
The skill of the surgeon and the quality of the implant are not the only key factors in ensuring a successful joint replacement. The perioperative practitioner is a vital link in the chain.
Good quality bone cement is essential for long-term implant survival, and the role of the theatre nurse in preparing that cement is vitally important. Cement mantle failure is the primary cause of aseptic loosening which is the most common indication for hip revision1. With the population getting older and staying active for longer, the survival rate of joint replacements is becoming even more important.
