Conclusion

Despite initial promise, Boneloc cement was found to have an unacceptably high failure rate over a relatively short follow-up period and is not recommended for use in total hip arthroplasty. Although conventional bone cements and their delivery systems present problems (eg, limited longevity, high exotherm, and noxious airborne material), long-term success has been established. Caution should be exerted before using new cement technology.
