    Gunnar Flivik
    Department of Orthopedics, Lund University Hospital, Sweden
    Clin Orthop Relat Res 448:164-72. 2006
    ..Removing the subchondral bone plate, where possible, improves the cement-bone interface without jeopardizing the stability, implying better long-term cup survival. However, it is a more demanding surgical technique...
  3. pmc Comparison of flanged and unflanged acetabular cup design. An experimental study using ceramic and cadaveric acetabuli
    Mette Ørskov
    Department of Orthopedics, Lund University and Skåne University Hospital, Lund, Sweden
    Acta Orthop 81:556-62. 2010
    ..A flanged cup, as opposed to unflanged, has been suggested to give a more uniform cement mantle and superior cement pressurization, thus improving the depth of cement penetration. This hypothesis was tested experimentally...
  4. ncbi request reprint Migration of the acetabular component: effect of cement pressurization and significance of early radiolucency: a randomized 5-year study using radiostereometry
    Gunnar Flivik
    Department of Orthopedics, Lund University Hospital, S 221 85 Lund, Sweden
    Acta Orthop 76:159-68. 2005
    ..Cementing technique is a crucial factor in prosthesis fixation. No randomized studies have been published, however, comparing the outcome of conventional fingerpacking with the outcome of pressurization of the cement prior to cup insertion...
  5. pmc Modified femoral pressuriser generates a longer lasting high pressure during cement pressurisation
    Jian Sheng Wang
    Department of Orthopedics, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University and Skåne University Hospital, Lund, S 221 85, Sweden
    J Orthop Surg Res 6:54. 2011
    ..A modified femoral pressuriser has been investigated, designed for closer fitting into the femoral opening to generate higher and more constant cement pressure compared to a commercial (conventional) design...

    Saba Abdulghani
    Department of Orthopedics, Lund University Hospital, Lund, Sweden
    Acta Orthop 78:333-9. 2007
    ..Acetabular cementation during total hip arthroplasty is considered difficult mainly due to the appearance and anatomy of the acetabulum. Improved cementation technique has been shown to improve the longevity of acetabular components...

    J Arthroplasty 29:850-5. 2014
    ..We also report a new way of detecting an undisplaced fracture at the modular junction, using the scout image from a computed tomography (CT) scan; a technique that can be used when plain radiographs are inconclusive. ..

    Ola Belfrage
    Department of Orthopedics, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University, Sweden
    Acta Orthop 82:228-33. 2011
    ..Bisphosphonates inactivate osteoclasts and can be used to control the resorption. We studied a combination of both drugs as a local admix to a cancellous allograft...

    Edward R Valstar
    Department of Orthopaedics, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands
