Foot and ankle bone defects that are the result of trauma, tumors and deformity-correction surgery all require management, and are particularly challenging in patients with decreased bone quality or poor vascular perfusion, which make defect healing and metalwork fixation more difficult.
CERAMENT®|BONE VOID FILLER remodels into host bone within 6-12 months, reducing the risk of re-fracture and improving long-term fixation.
In foot and ankle defects access can be difficult, and bone voids may be underestimated on imaging, so CERAMENT®|BONE VOID FILLER offers injectability through a 16G needle, flowability and radiopacity, making it ideal for either open or percutaneous surgery and offering complete void filling.
