Abstract

The effect of cement penetration into bone of lavage was investigated using 0.9% salined, hydrogen peroxide or an alcohol solution. It was proved that the detergent solution could provide a clean, debris free cancellous network, which consequently provides a greater depth of cement penetration than other commonly used irrigating agents. It was observed that cement penetration into cancellous bone followed the line and depth of cleaning from lavage. It was concluded that lavage with detergent solution affords a statistically greater depth of cement penetration into bone than 0.9% saline lavage.
