Objectives: This study was design to gain a deeper understanding of the results and problems associated with this procedure and to evaluate if using bone cement with the Austin Moore’s prosthesis offers any distinct advantages in reducing the complications of thigh pain, stem loosening and peri prosthetic fractures.
Conclusion: Hemiarthroplasty using cemented Austin Moore prosthesis for fractures of the femoral neck provides freedom from pain, better range of movement and more rapid return to unassisted activity with an acceptable complication rate.
