The effect of storage for periods up to two years in bovine serum at 37C on the mechanical properties of Simplex and CMW bone cements was studied. No significant deterioration was detected either in static properties or in compressional fatigue behavior. The data on compressional fatigue suggest that working stresses in the cement be limited to less than 1.4 x 10 to minus eight dynessq cm to insure long-term viability of any design or implantation technique.
