Abstract

The rationale behind failure of cemented total hip replacement is still far from being well understood in a mechanical and molecular perspective. In the present study, the integrity of the stem-cement interface was investigated through an in vitro experiment monitoring fluid flow along this interface. The results indicated that a good mechanical bonding formed at the stem-cement interface before debonding of this interface was induced by physiological loadings during the in vivo service of the hip prosthesis.
