Aseptic loosening of cemented femoral components with design shortcomings or where poor cementing technique has been used are significant problems in the long term. Radiological loosening of cemented femoral components in some series is reported to be as high as 30–50% at 10 to 12 years (Stauffer 1982, Wejkner and Stanport 1988, Maloney et al. 1990).
