PALACOS® - Bone cement for primary arthroplasty

For more than 50 years, PALACOS® bone cement has been the gold standard when it comes to permanent fixation of implants. PALACOS® bone cements with gentamicin provide effective infection prophylaxis through local application of antibiotics. Recent data from the National Joint Registry (NJR) demonstrate that PALACOS® R+G has a significantly lower revision rate in comparison to all other cement brands in hip and knee replacements.
The PALACOS® product portfolio comprises an extensive range of high-quality bone cements to ensure utmost flexibility:

  • Different viscosities
  • Available with and without gentamicin added

PALACOS® R+G pro*

  • Proven quality of PALACOS® bone cement with gentamicin
  • Ready-to-mix package for standard primary joint replacement procedures
  • Safe and contactless handling of the cement components
  • Time-saving mixture
  • Convenient and clearly structured working

Simplified handling of gold standard PALACOS®R+G for reliable mixing results.

supportive products primary arthroplasty

In primary arthroplasty the application of the modern cementing technique by combining 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 with appropriate viscosity and composition, but also to:

  • Vacuum mixing systems that produce homogeneous, standardised mixtures such as PALAMIX®
  • Bone bed cleaning with a pulse lavage system such as PALAVAGE®
