Mixing (PALAMIX®) and pulse lavage for modern cementing technique

In modern cementing techniques, the combination of different elements is crucial to the long-term surgical outcome. Today, ’state-of-the-art’ not only refers to the choice of suitable bone cement, but also to vacuum mixing systems that produce homogeneous, standardised mixtures, bone bed cleaning with a pulse lavage system, and the application of pressure with a pressuriser.

As essential components of modern cementing technology, Heraeus offers its customers both a high-quality vacuum mixing system (PALAMIX®) as well as an effective pulse lavage system.

PALAMIX® - The next generation*

  • Optimal homogeneity of the bone cement thanks to mixing under vacuum
  • Reproducibly high bone cement quality
  • Easy and time-saving use thanks to collection under vacuum
  • Minimal handling steps make mastering its use easier
  • Universal: one cartridge size for different procedures with variable bone cement requirements
  • Filling funnel with particle filter prevents glass particles in the bone cement

PALAMIX®*

  • Safe and easy handling
  • Reproducible mixing results due to a standardised mixing concept
  • Easy to incorporate into surgical procedures
  • Selection of nozzles for different indications
  • Diverse pressurisers for optimal cementing techniques

In addition to vacuum mixing and pressurisation, bone bed cleaning with a pulse lavage system has evolved to become an important aspect of modern cementing techniques. The risk of revisions is much lower according to study data.

The bone bed can be cleaned effectively with a pulse lavage system, leaving the surgical site ideally prepared for the application of cement.
