HIP & KNEE REVISIONS: WHY USE CERAMENT

CERAMENT augments the management of hip and knee revisions;

Dead space management

High local concentration of antibiotic

Remodels into bone within 6 -12 months

Patients undergoing revision arthroplasty have consistently been reported to be at higher risk of infection in comparison to primary arthroplasty, with infection rates of 7.9% – 33% reported, irrespective of whether a one or two-stage approach is used. In addition, bone loss becomes an increasing problem with every revision.

CERAMENT can help you in the management of hip and knee revisions because it remodels into host bone within 6-12 months, offering stability and fixation for the new implant, and improved bone stock should another revision be required. Injectability  and  flowability  means it can be placed in areas that are difficult to access, and ensures complete defect filling, and for high-risk patients CERAMENT®| G  and  CERAMENT® V can provide a high local concentration of antibiotic.
