Comparison of cemented versus uncemented acetabular component positioning using an imageless navigation system
Chawda, Mayur, Hucker, Peter, Whitehouse, Sarah L., Crawford, Ross W., English, Hugh, & Donnelly, William J. (2008) Comparison of cemented versus uncemented acetabular component positioning using an imageless navigation system. Journal of Arthroplasty, 24(8), pp. 1170-1173.
Hip Navigation was used as an assessment tool to compare ability to reproduce trial and definitive acetabular placement in total hip replacement, using cemented and uncemented components. We demonstrated a significant difference in reproducibility between components. Four of 20 (20%) uncemented cups deviated from the target inclination by 5 degrees or more compared to none of 21 in the cemented group (p=0.048). Seven of the 20 (35%) of the uncemented cups deviated from the target version by 5 degrees or more compared to none of 21 in the cemented group (p=0.003). This may explain higher rates of revision for dislocation with uncemented components. There was also a significant difference between the groups with regard to deviation from planned leg length (p<0.001).
