Bone cement is used during knee replacement surgery to anchor the artificial knee joints. High viscosity bone cement (HVC) provides shorter missing and waiting times and longer working and hardening phase. This is beneficial in that surgeons can handle and apply the cement earlier. Although more convenient, evidence is being to mount that the bond it produces is not as strong.
Researchers have observed more early failures with the use of HVC even when there has been a previously well-performing implant. Complications include loosening and debonding (failure to adhere to the bone) which requires revisions surgery and causes chronic pain and instability.
