Project Description

ORTHOCEM® 1 & 3

Surgical Cement

ORTHOCEM® 1 & 3 are radiopaque and self-hardening bone cements indicated for arthroplasty surgeries.

• Cements ideally respond to the needs of the surgeon, 2 viscosities for 2 types of applications :
ORTHOCEM® 1 : standard (high) viscosity bone cement for manual application.
ORTHOCEM® 3 : low viscosity bone cement, with optimum fluidity to allow an easy application with a syringe or injection gun.

ADVANTAGES

  • Low monomer leaching
  • Low exothermic release
  • Easy to handle
  • High viscosity
  • Ease of use
  • Reduced bone necrosis
  • Long application time
