G1™ and G3™ bone cements are radiopaque bone cements for surgical use to perform arthroplasty procedures, such as hip replacement, knee replacement, ankle replacement, shoulder replacement and other joint replacements, specifically formulated to allow fixation of prosthetic devices on the living bone.
G21 bone cements for orthopaedics with antibiotic a self-curing, radiopaque, polymethyl methacrylate
based cement which is used for securing a metal or polymeric prosthesis to living bone in arthroplasty revision procedures such as hip replacement, knee replacement, ankle replacement, shoulder replacement and other joints replacement, specifically formulated for patients:
- where the general or local conditions indicate an increased risk of infection;
- with a compromised general state (malnutrition, diabetes, systemic infections,…);
- needing a revision of hip or other joints prosthe-sis where a local infection has developed.
G1A™ and G3A™ are indicated for use in the second stage of a two stages revision for total joint arthroplasty after the initial infection has been cleared.
The G21 bone cements for orthopaedics are comes in the form of a two-component system (powder and liquid) to be mixed at the time of application in the operating theatre – is formulated so to develop the right viscosity for the type of application and such that, once hardened, it assumes a compact structure which enhances the mechanical strength of the implant.
