ORTHOCEM® 1

PMMA acrylic cement

ORTHOCEM® 1 is a bone cement for securing prostheses to the bone during surgery following a trauma or other infections, as well as during revision surgery for previous arthroplasties.

ORTHOCEM® 1 has a standard viscosity, sets rapidly, is self-hardening, minimises setting time and it can be applied manually.

ADVANTAGES

  • Low monomer leaching
  • Low exothermic release
  • Easy to handle
