The article presents information on a study that determines the diagnosis for cement removal in revision arthroplasty of the hip. The removal of well-fixed cement can be extremely demanding, time-consuming, and damaging to the remaining host bone in revision hip arthroplasty. The study findings highlight the risk factors for femoral perforation and intraoperative fracture.
