Hip Fixation

Cemented or Cementless Methods

First and foremost, a differentiation is made between the anchoring principle, i.e., whether the implant will be cemented or anchored cementlessly. A combination of the two methods is also commonplace in practice, and this is called a hybrid hip replacement.

Especially in the case of fractures where the natural hip socket is still intact, i.e., does not yet show any signs of wear, a special form of implant is used, namely a bipolar head. This is then called a partial endoprosthesis. The advantage in this case is that the acetabular bearing does not require any preparation.

Selecting the correct prosthesis and type of anchoring very much depends on the patient’s individual situation and the condition of the bone as well as the patient’s activity level.
