Orthodynamics launches injectable ceramic bone filler in UK
22 April 2013
Orthodynamics, part of UK-based Summit Medical Group, and Swedish
company Bone Support AB have established a partnership to promote
the use of Cerament Bone Void Filler and
Cerament G into the UK market.
Cerament Bone Void Filler is an osteoconductive ceramic
biomaterial intended for orthopaedic applications as a filler for
gaps and voids that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony
structure. It is indicated to be injected into bony voids or gaps in
the skeletal system, ie extremities and pelvis. These defects may be
surgically created osseous defects or osseous defects from traumatic
injury to the bone.
Cerament G is a bone void filler that elutes gentamicin
antibiotic. This product not only promotes new bone growth, but it
also protects the process by a predictable elution of gentamicin
antibiotic (in vitro model).
Cerament Bone Void Filler and Cerament G is a flowable paste that
can be delivered through a narrow gauge needle; it is not
temperature dependent; has a predictable setting time and you are
able to mould the material to fit the void.
