|English term or phrase: suture points|
|The (implant) system offers the choice of cemented or uncemented humeral fixation. All components incorporate suture points.|
While a suture commonly is a stitch made with a suture (as refered to in the preceding answer), it also is the line of union in an immovable articulation (as between the bones of the skull).
In general cemented fixation is less risky, especially when the cement is medicated with antibiotics.
