Abstract

A new technique for plugging the femoral cavity prior to inserting methylmethacrylate during total hip arthroplasty is described. The plastic "Mexican hat" cement restrictor previously used in the acetabulum is trimmed and used conveniently as the femoral plug. This technique has been used satisfactorily and without complication in more than 50 cases.
