Professor Thomas Heyse (DE) discusses the evolution of cemented total hip arthroplasty, including the importance of bone bed preparation, vacuum mixing and pressurisation. He shares expertise on how lower revision rates can be achieved, with fewer infections and better clinical survival. Trends towards cementless THA are discussed, including correlations with certain patient groups, followed by Prof Heyse’s experience with POLARSTEM™. He concludes by discussing factors and techniques that can contribute to better implant survival.
