We performed revision surgery in 2 patients for stem fracture of a cemented tumor prosthesis that occurred more than 25 years after the initial surgery. For revision, the global modular replacement system (GMRS) was used. However, as bone cement in the bone could not be adequately removed, stems with respective diameters of 11 and 12.5 mm were used. In revision surgery for cemented tumor prostheses, adequate removal of residual bone cement is optimal. However, when there is a risk of fracture, it may be appropriate to insert a thicker stem after reaming the femoral canal as much as possible, and then fix the stem using the cement-in-cement method.
