In this video, Dr Götze discusses the best practices with cement spacers in hip revision arthroplasty. He shares outcome data on the best way to treat infected hip replacements and if a one stage or two stage revision is the best practice. He concludes his presentation with a list of the best practices that he has found, including; two-stage revision arthroplasty spacers have the potential for local infection treatment with antibiotic-impregnated cement, and to avoid spacers by intraoperative dislocation because of bony and soft-tissue circumstances. He stresses that the cement spacer should restore function and avoid soft-tissue contraction and that a second-stage cementless reimplantation needs a more accurate plan.
