G21 - Ortopedia - Cementi ossei

The G21 bone cements for orthopedics are the results of the evaluation and improvement of the other systems available on the market; they are designed and manufactured to minimize the impact on their mechanical properties of factors such as ambient conditions and preparation methods.
Reproducibility of performance and chemical/physical properties without compromise are the strengths of G1™ and G3™, acrylic-based (poly-methyl-meth-acrylate, PMMA) sterile radiopaque bone cements.
G1™ and G3™ bone cements are indicated in cases of fixation and revision of articular prostheses of the hip, knee and shoulder, fixation of bone defects and pathological fractures.
The bone cements are supplied as two-component systems (power + liquid) to be mixed at the time of application in the operating room; their formulations are designed to develop the viscosity required for the specific application and, once hardened, assume a compact structure with very low residual porosity.

The bone cements are available in standard or low viscosity, with or without antibiotic (Gentamicin).

G1™ STANDARD VISCOSITY BONE CEMENTS

The G1™ sterile radiopaque bone cements have a consistency and working time particularly suitable for cementation of knee prostheses. In the initial phases, the G1™ has properties that also make it suitable for cementation of hip prostheses.
The G1™ can be mixed and applied by hand (bowl and spatula) or using mixing and injection devices.
The G1™ is available with or without antibiotic (Gentamicin).

Characteristics:
  • reduced mixing time (under a minute to obtain a homogeneous product);
  • working time suitable for the type of application (4-5 minutes);
  • polymerization is completed after 10 minutes, so as to reduce the risk of micro-movements of the prosthesis once applied;
  • excellent mechanical properties;
  • low polymerization temperature so as to reduce the risk of thermal shock on the tissues and bone necrosis;
  • high-molecular-weight polymer to improve the fatigue strength of the implant.

G3™ LOW VISCOSITY BONE CEMENTS

The G3™ sterile radiopaque bone cements consistency and working time are particularly suitable for cementation of hip prostheses and for working on medium/small joints.
The G3™ is ideal for use with mixing and injection devices.
The G3™ is available with or without antibiotic (Gentamicin).

Characteristics:
  • reduced mixing time (under a minute to obtain a homogeneous product);
  • working time suitable for the type of application (6-8 minutes);
  • polymerization is completed after 13 minutes, so as to reduce the risk of micro-movements of the prosthesis once applied;
  • excellent mechanical properties;
  • low polymerization temperature so as to reduce the risk of thermal shock on the tissues and bone necrosis;
  • high-molecular-weight polymer to improve the fatigue strength of the implant.
