Abstract: Cement augmentation may improve fixation stability and reduce cut-out rate in the treatment of intertrochanteric hip fractures. The aim of this study was to compare the number of cycles to failure of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)-augmented helical blades with nonaugmented ones in human cadaveric femoral heads.
