You could no more live with a loose stem than you could a fractured bone!I do not want to live with a loose prosthesis and the pain that goes with it.
This is not the cause of a failed embedded implant. Mostly it's because the site has not been properly prepared at the time of surgery. Read this Cemented and uncemented hips for more detail.So, is anyone familiar with metal sensitivities or allergies? I have never been tested but, I will be getting tested this week. It may be the answer to why both prostheses never achieved complete ingrowth.
reactions to cheap jewelry do not necessarily show a metal allergy.I often had reactions to necklaces or bracelets that were not pure gold, silver, or platinum. If I wore them for extended amount of time, I’d often end up getting a rash in the area touched by the metal.
Some of the inks used in tattooing have metal bases.Then I remembered. back in 2009 I got a small red tattoo above my inner ankle. From day one, it itched like crazy.
