CRANIOS REINFORCED® Fast Set Putty and Rotary Mix

Division: Biomaterials
Category: CMF

CRANIOS REINFORCED® Fast Set Putty and Rotary Mix are biocompatible, self-setting calcium phosphate cements intended to fill defects in the restoration or augmentation of the cranial skeleton. They contain reinforcing fibers that impart an increase in toughness* to reduce crack propagation during the setting process.

*Toughness is defined as a material’s ability to resist fracture when stressed. Data on file with Synthes, mechanical test FRN TEST 132.

Indications for Use

CRANIOS REINFORCED Rotary Mix and CRANIOS REINFORCED Fast Set Putty are indicated for repairing or filling cranial defect and craniotomy cuts with a surface area no larger than 25 cm2. CRANIOS REINFORCED Rotary Mix and CRANIOS REINFORCED Fast Set Putty are also indicated for the restoration or augmentation of bony contours of the cranial skeleton (including fronto-orbital areas) such as burr hole voids and other cranial defects. 

Features & Benefits

  • Reinforcing Fibers: Impart increased toughness* to resist cracking during the setting process
  • Sodium Hyaluronate Solution: Increased viscosity enhances the cohesion and handling of the material
  • High Compressive Strength: Reaches a maximum compressive strength of 35 MPa (Inject) and 25 MPa (Fast Set Putty) within 24 hours. This compressive strength is greater than cancellous bone1
  • Hardens in a Warm, Wet Environment: Reducing the need to limit moisture at the operative site
  • Closely Resembles the Mineral Phase of Bone: Gradually resorbed and replaced with bone during the natural bone healing process
  • Isothermic Hardening: Prevents thermal injury to surrounding soft tissue
  • pH Neutral: Limits the risk of foreign body reaction caused by localized pH imbalance
