HIP REPLACEMENT "BENCHMARK" IS CEMENTED FEMORAL STEM WITH CEMENTLESS ACETABULAR HEAD, NIH CONSENSUS PANEL CONCLUDES; HIP REGISTRIES SUGGESTED

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

A hybrid hip replacement comprised of a cemented femoral stem and a cementless acetabular head should be the "gold standard" in the design of primary hip replacement prostheses, a National Institutes of Health consensus panel suggested at the conclusion of a Sept. 12-14 meeting in Bethesda, Maryland. Citing the efficacy and long-term durability of the respective components, the group concluded in its consensus statement that "the benchmark for the primary total hip is a cemented femoral component using new cement techniques, and a cementless acetabular component."
