In this updated and extensively rewritten second edition, The Exeter Hip Unit and colleagues from
around the world describe 50 years of innovation and development in cemented hip arthroplasty.
This book is much more than a guide to the use of a particular prosthesis. Over 30 international
co-authors explain and define the fundamental principles that form the foundations for any successful hip arthroplasty.
The basic science and surgical techniques in modern cemented hip arthroplasty and revision surgery are described, including:
  • Properties and use of acrylic cement
  • Design and biomechanics of a successful cemented hip arthroplasty
  • The science of loosening, lysis and wear
  • Preparation of patients for successful surgery
  • Potential complications and their avoidance
  • Modern primary surgical techniques and new developments
  • Complex primary hip arthroplasty and specialist techniques
  • Management of femoral neck fractures with cemented arthroplasty
  • Outcomes of cemented hip arthroplasty• Principles of revision hip arthroplasty
  • Basic science of impaction bone grafting in revision surgery
  • Femoral and acetabular impaction bone grafting techniques
  • Results of revision with bone graft and cement
  • Management of infected hip arthroplasty
  • The use of robotics in hip arthroplasty
