Vacuum mixing and pulse lavage - Aspects of modern cementing technique in endoprosthetics

Modern cementing technique is considered as ’state-of-the-art’ in endoprosthetics. It describes the combination of different elements that contribute to sustainable surgical outcome1:

  • bone bed cleaning with a pulse lavage system
  • choice of a suitable bone cement
  • vacuum mixing systems that produce homogeneous, standardised mixtures
  • pressurisation

To properly exercise modern cementing technique, Heraeus offers the two vacuum mixing systems for bone cements PALAMIX® and PALABOWL® as well as the effective pulse lavage system PALAVAGE®.
