Abstract

The improved cemented cup technique has attained excellent long-term results in primary total hip arthroplasty. When cup revision surgery was performed, the cemented cup, which was loosened at the bone-cement interface, was easily removed. However, with a well-fixed bone-cement interface, it remains difficult to remove the cemented cup for a revision in the event of a recurring dislocation. In addition, protrusions in the cement can cause unpredictable bone defects. A new removal device was created and used successfully to remove a well-fixed cemented cup safely and efficiently. This report introduces the device and the technique used in cemented cup removal.
