Revision THR: Cemented Femoral Component



- Discussion:
    - 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,
               and to also use modern cementing techniques
    - consider addition of antibiotics to cement to prevent infection;
    - 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
