This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
This review systematically investigates the evidence of the efficacy of cemented vs. cementless fixation techniques with respect to the outcome of hip prostheses.
The primary endpoint is the diagnosis of an aseptical loosening of either cup or stem of the endoprosthesis. Key to diagnosis are radiological signs of loosening or dislocation. Loosening of the hip may occur with or without clinical symtoms.
Secondary endpoints are surgical morbidity and mortality, complications, costs, hospital stay, functional scores, quality of life,
Thromboembolim, infection, dislocation, duration of hospital stay, Harris Hip Score as measure for the functional outcome, Merle-D'Aubigne, WOMAC and SF36 scores as measures for patient satisfaction.
