A radiolucent zone at the interface of bone and implants in total joint prosthesis is frequently observed in uncemented and cemented implants. This radiolucent zone, representing a fibrous tissue, is the result of the progressive deterioration of the bone surrounding implants. Fibrous tissues affect the implant fixation, increasing then the risk of aseptic loosening. Today, aseptic loosening is the most common cause of arthroplasties revisions.
