Project Description

F20®

PMMA bone cement for vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty

F20 ® cement, manufactured in accordance with standard ISO 5833, is a medium viscosity, ready-to-use cement containing a high concentration of radio-opaque agent, making it highly visible and therefore safe to use, both essential parameters during a percutaneous vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty procedure. The chemical composition has been optimized to get the must suitable handling properties for pratician’s convenience.

F20 ® comes as an ampoule of sterile liquid and a pouch of sterile powder (liquid monomer and powder polymer).

ADVANTAGES

  • High radio-opacity
  • Medium viscosity
  • Biocompatibility
  • Easy to handle
  • Long working time
