Knee replacements are intended to restore a patient’s ability to move freely and without pain. Many of these prosthetic devices are attached using a type of cement that is meant to hold fast to the bone without cracking or leaking. Unfortunately, several brands of bone cement present a risk of serious medical problems for knee replacement recipients.
