Abstract Thirty cases whose femoral side was operated with interface bioactive bone cement technique in revision total hip arthroplasty for aseptic loosening and followed for more than 6 years were evaluated. The present study includes 2 men and 28 women with an average age at operation of 60 years. Mean postoperative follow-up period was 9 years. Rerevision of femoral component was not found. Possible loosening was observed in 1 case, using the criteria of Harris. Among 21 cases whose cementing grade was assessed as B or C in postoperative x-ray, radiolucent line at bone-cement interface has disappeared before last follow-up in 11 cases. The present study revealed that the good result was obtained using the interface bioactive bone cement technique for reconstruction of aseptic femoral loosening.
