TRAUMACEM™ V+ Injectable Bone Cement

Division: Trauma
Category: Hip & Pelvis

The TRAUMACEM™ V+ Injectable Bone Cement is indicated for augmentation of the TFN-ADVANCED™ Proximal Femoral Nailing System (TFNA) through cannulated implants and instruments for patients with poor bone quality (e.g., osteoporosis).

The first and only polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement with specific indications for augmentation of a trauma device, allowing surgeons to inject a controlled amount of cement into the femoral head in patients with poor bone quality, reducing the risk of cut-out.

The TRAUMACEM V+ Augmentation System is offered for use with the TFNA System and builds on the list of comprehensive surgical options that the TFNA System offers.

Indications for Use

TFNA System with Augmentation

Indications:

  • Both the short and long TFNA Systems are additionally indicated for use with cleared, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement that can be delivered through the fenestrated blade or screw via a cannula in skeletally mature adults with risk of cut-out or device instability due to poor bone quality

Contraindications:

  • Risk for intra-articular cement leakage
  • Acute traumatic fractures with good bone quality
  • Intracapsular hip fractures
  • In the presence of active or incompletely treated infection at the site where the bone cement is to be applied

*Optional Augmentation
TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone Cement - Head Element Head element design enables intraoperative decision making Fenestrated head elements perform equivalent to solid head elements, thus enabling choice of augmentation with a single implant design.
TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone Cement - Controlled Injection Controlled Injection Inject a controlled amount of cement into the femoral head using a uniquely designed injection cannula and fenestrated head element, providing strong implant fixation.
  Specifically Selected Initial viscosity of TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone cement allows for cement injection immediately after mixing with no wait time. Cement working time begins immediately and lasts for up to 27 minutes at room temperature. Radiopaque design enables visualization under fluoroscopy to detect cement flow.
TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone Cement - Outcomes-Based Design Outcomes-Based Design This system is designed to improve patient outcomes by addressing some of the most pressing clinical challenges, such as poor bone quality.
TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone Cement - Reduced Procedural Complexity Reduced Procedural Complexity The TFNA System is designed to improve efficiency and ease of use for surgeons and OR staff with lateral visualization, back table instrument simplicity, and intraoperative flexibility.
