Abstract

A removal procedure of a femoral cement mantle in hip revision arthroplasty has a risk of causing perforation or fracture, especially when removing a well-fixed distal cement plug. A high-powered drill equipped with a centralizer was developed to remove the distal cement plug safely. Using the drill equipped with a centralizer, the cement plug was removed well enough to insert a new component without causing perforation during the operation.
