Reduction of the potential for thermal damage during hip resurfacing.

Abstract:

Resurfacing arthroplasty of the hip is being used increasingly as an alternative to total hip replacement, especially for young active patients. There is concern about necrosis of the femoral head after resurfacing which can result in fracture and loosening. Most systems use a cemented femoral component, with the potential for thermal necrosis of the cancellous bone of the reamed femoral head. We used thermal probes to record temperatures close to the cement-bone interface during resurfacing ...
