Abstract

Ultrasonically driven tools have been employed extensively in revision hip surgery during the last 2 years at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. In combination with hand revision instruments, the removal of cement, in particular the removal of the distal cement plug, has been made safer. One significant complication that has occurred with this device is reported and advice on its prevention offered.
