- for cemented femoral revisions to be successful it is imperative to debride and remove the medullary soft tissue membrane and neocortex in the medullary canal,

- revision femoral stem length should be 1-3 cm longer than original stem;
- if there is femroal cortical disruption, the revision stem should extend two to three shaft diameters distal to the defect
