Project Description


Bio-absorbable Cement Restrictor

CEMSTOP® aIIows a sealing of the medullary cavity before the introduction of acrylic cement during hip arthroplasty surgeries.
CEMSTOP® Iimits the cement progression into the diaphysis, and facilitates cement pressurization.

Each CEMSTOP® restrictor is supplied in sterile double wrapping and is available in the following 6 sizes: 8 – 10 – 12 – 14 – 16 – 18.

Each size is the diameter of the medullary canal to be plugged. A size 10 restrictor therefore effective restricts a medullary cavity of diameter 10.


  • Resorbable
  • Flexible
  • Biocompatible
  • Simplified revision procedure
  • Flexible material, fits the diaphysis perfectly
