The Science of CERAMENT™

  • CERAMENT™ is a Synthetic Bioceramic Bone Substitute
  • Designed to mimic human cancellous bone
    • Provides short term resorbable support for the fracture or bone void providing rapid pain relief and stabilisation.
    • Provides longer term osteoconductive support which enhances new bone growth.
  • Patented technology results in the unique qualities of this Biomaterial.
    • Calcium Sulphate and Hydroxyapatite combined with liquid Iohexol creates a highly injectable, osteoconductive and bioactive material.
  • A BIOMATERIAL is designed to interface with biological systems to:
    • Evaluate
    • Treat
    • Augment
    • Or replace any tissue, organ, or function of the body.

  • Biomaterials can be metals, ceramics (i.e. Hydroxyapatite), polymers, and composites.
