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).
