Therefore, the benefits of a pre-colored high viscosity cement remain. Cobalt™ bone cement is pre-colored blue, providing superior visualization of the cement when compared to bone.
High Optical Contrast
Optimal visualization for:
- Contrast against bone
- Cement removal
- Minimally invasive procedures
Patent Pending SoftPac™ Technology
- No chance of glass fragments in cement mixture
- Safer alternative for O.R. staff
- Economical disposal
High Viscosity Consistency
The high viscosity/high contrast properties of Cobalt™ cement are intended to provide improved handling characteristics and a reduced overall set-time.
Surgeons do not need to wait for the cement to "dough up," providing them with increased working time.
The improved workability of Cobalt™ bone cement makes it the first choice for minimally invasive surgery.
Cobalt™ HV Bone Cement is indicated for use as bone cement in arthroplastic procedures of the hip, knee and other joints to fix plastic and metal prosthetic parts to living bone when reconstruction is necessary because of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis, avascular necrosis, nonunion of fractures of the neck of the femur, sickle cell anemia osteoporosis, secondary severe joint destruction following trauma or other conditions (also for fixation of unstable fractures in metastatic malignancies), and revision of previous arthroplasty procedures.
