Large joint implants can either have a porous and textured surface to induce bone growth, or they can be smooth. The smooth varieties require bone cement to permanently adhere implants to bone. Rather than acting purely as an adhesive, bone cement accomplishes fixation by filling the space between the bone and implant. Its chief constituent is polymethylmethacrylate, which is the same material used to make Lucite® or Plexiglas®. The other key ingredient is a liquid monomer of methylmethacrylate. Each is stored separately until the time of the operation and are mixed during the time of the operation. Doing so produces a polymerization reaction that solidifies the substances.
