Project Description

High V

High-viscosity PMMA acrylic cement radiopaque

High V cement, is a high-viscosity, ready-to-use cement suitable for immediate and stable fixation of pathological fractures in a vertebral body. The cement contains a large quantity of a radiopaque agent (27% BaSO4 and 9% HAP) allowing perfect visualisation, an essential feature during percutaneous vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty procedures.
High V comes in the form of an ampoule of sterile liquid and a sachet of sterile powder (a liquid monomer and a powder polymer).

ADVANTAGES

  • Excellent radiopacity
  • No waiting time
  • Long working time
  • Controlled bone filling
  • Ultra-high viscosity
  • Reduced risk of extra-vertebral leakage
