PALACADEMY® video tutorials for the handling of bone cement in Arthroplasty

The PALACADEMY® tutorials are short video clips for self-study on the topic of PMMA bone cement: General understanding of the material, the different processing phases, tips on the application and modern cementing technique in arthroplasty. Each video focuses on a different aspect of PMMA cement and presents the topic in a practical, experimental and playful manner. The most important facts and tips are summarised at the end of each video.

New videos are added regularly.

Video overview

handling phases of bone cement

Handling phases of bone cement

The Polymerisation of bone cement takes place in four consecutive phases: Mixing phase - Sticky phase - Application phase - Setting phase. The videos in this section show in a very concrete and practical way how the surgical team can recognise when the respective processing phase is finished and what needs to be considered when cementing prostheses.

Bone cement basics

Bone cement basics

Bone Cement is primarily used for mechanical anchorage of implants into the bone. With the following videos, you will learn more about the characteristics and special features of this material. For example, the experiments illustrate how bone cement mechanically anchors the prosthesis in the cancellous bone, how antibiotics are released from the cement and which factors play a role in temperature development during hardening.
