Dear Editor,

We read with great interest the timely study by Satish et al., How Much Bone Cement Is Utilized for Component Fixation in Primary Cemented Total Knee Arthroplasty? (1). We applaud the authors, yet we hope they can clarify some points to make this study more applicable to a wider population.
