Improving Initial Acetabular Component Stability in Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty Calcium Phosphate Cement vs Reverse Reamed Cancellous Allograft.
The Center for Orthopedic Research and Education (CORE) Institute; The Banner Sun Health Research Institute.
A reproducible retroacetabular defect was created bilaterally in 9 cadaver pelves. The defects were filled with either an injectable, bioresorbable, calcium phosphate cement, or reverse-reamed cancellous allograft. An uncemented acetabular shell was impacted, followed by the placement of an appropriate liner. The pelves were then sectioned, and each half was loaded in a material testing machine to simulate walking on the construct over a several week period. The cement-filled defects lasted a greater number of cycles before failure and had greater cup stability and stiffness. The use of resorbable bone void filler for retroacetabular defects shows promise in this biomechanical analysis. Long-term clinical follow-up is warranted to track osseointegration of the implant and restoration of bone stock between this and other clinically accepted surgical techniques.
