Cement-in-cement revision for selected Vancouver Type B1 femoral periprosthetic fractures : A biomechanical analysis
Brew, Christopher J., Wilson, Lance J., Whitehouse, Sarah L., Hubble, Matthew J.W., & Crawford, Ross W. (2013) Cement-in-cement revision for selected Vancouver Type B1 femoral periprosthetic fractures : A biomechanical analysis. The Journal of Arthroplasty, 28(3), pp. 521-525.
The aim of this study was to perform a biomechanical analysis of the cement-in-cement (c-in-c) technique for fixation of selected Vancouver Type B1 femoral periprosthetic fractures and to assess the degree of cement interposition at the fracture site. Six embalmed cadaveric femora were implanted with a cemented femoral stem. Vancouver Type B1 fractures were created by applying a combined axial and rotational load to failure. The femora were repaired using the c-in-c technique and reloaded to failure. The mean primary fracture torque was 117 Nm (SD 16.6, range 89–133). The mean revision fracture torque was 50 Nm (SD 16.6, range 29–74), which is above the torque previously observed for activities of daily living. Cement interposition at the fracture site was found to be minimal.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
