Will the surrounding bone be influenced by the expansion of the REX Cement Stop?
No, for two reasons: (1) the pressure exerted by the REX Cement Stop on the surrounding bone is of a very short duration, because the gelatin bushing resorbs quickly and (2) at the time of expansion, the pressure will be maximally 25 bar on the femoral wall. As soon as this maximum has been reached, the head of the REX Cement Stop snaps off. This results in a slight relaxation of the tightened locking mechanism, and the wall pressure drops immediately to 5 – 7 bar.
