Learn the Total Hip replacement: Cemented Exeter/Contemporary (Stryker) by a posterior approach surgical technique with step by step instructions on OrthOracle. Our e-learning platform contains high resolution images and a certified CME of the Total Hip replacement: Cemented Exeter/Contemporary (Stryker) by a posterior approach surgical procedure.

A cemented total hip replacement should be considered in the elderly population. It is forgiving to the ageing skeleton which is reflected in the fact that there is a lower risk of fracture of both the acetabular and femoral bone when compared to uncemented designs.

The Exeter cemented stem has excellent survivorship, reported as 100% at 17 years (Carrington et al), and is a polished, double tapered cemented stem which has an ODEP* 13A star rating.

The contemporary cup has excellent survival (Magges et al). Options for both a ceramic or metal head are available and where possible a 32mm head is favoured to reduce dislocation rates.

Surgical Steps

Welcome to the surgical steps quiz.

This tests your ability to recall the correct order in which the key steps of an operation should be performed.

There will be various legitimate variations in this order but the quiz doesn’t reflect this.
Your reference point for the steps quiz is just our operative technique.
It’s one starting point in helping you to learn the technique.

  • You simply “drag & drop” the boxes containing the descriptions of the steps into the order you think fits and submit for marking.
  • If you get it correct first time you will be presented your certificate at the end of the quiz.
  • If you need to do more work on the steps you access your marked version by clicking the“re-sit the quiz” button.
  • This will show the steps you ordered correctly highlighted in green and the incorrect ones in red.
  • The correct green steps are fixed and won’t move.
  • The red steps move differently after your initial attempt and swap locations with the step they are dragged and dropped onto .
  • Finally resubmit the quiz once again.
  • The quiz will let you keep going until you get all the steps in the right order.
