Not just unprecedented. Untouchable.

The innovative PALACOS® R & R+G pro All-in-One Fixation System™ integrates the renowned quality of PALACOS® bone cement into a ready-to-mix closed vacuum system. By adding an efficient, sterile workflow to the gold standard in cement1, PALACOS® R & R+G pro brings a new level of simplification and standardization to joint arthroplasty procedures.

PALACOS® pro: Fixated on Simplicity. Designed for Safety. Known for Superiority.

Let the PALACOS® R & R+G pro All-In-One-Fixation-SystemTM bring new levels of simplification and standardization to your joint arthroplasty procedure.

  • Preloaded packaging streamlines cement preparation
  • Dispensing valve releases formula, eliminating contact with monomer liquid
  • Double filtration for removal of glass particles
  • Sealed ampoule and activated charcoal filter reduces MMA fumes during mixing process2
  • Homogenous cement in 20 seconds
  • All-in-one stocking unit simplifies ordering and lowers facility costs
  • All the benefits of PALACOS® R & R+G* in a ready-to-mix closed vacuum system

* In the United States, PALACOS® R+G is indicated for use in the second stage of a two stage revision for the total joint arthroplasty after the initial infection has been cleared.

Closed mixing systems, such as the PALACOS® R & R+G pro All-In-One-Fixation-SystemTM, provide protection not just for the cement during mixing and setting, but also for the patient and staff in the operating room. 

Research studies have shown significant bacterial and particulate counts inside the OR and that contamination of the back-table is time dependent.3,4 Additionally, 97% of the delegates to the 2018 International Consensus Meeting on PJI expressed concern that particles such as cement may cause contamination after becoming aerosolized, contacting unsterile surfaces, and falling onto sterile equipment or into the wound.5 Our enclosed system minimizes the risk of contamination by providing safe and contactless handling.

Closed mixing systems also greatly reduce staff and patient exposure to MMA fumes. The PALACOS® pro All-In-One-Fixation-SystemTM has been shown to reduce MMA fumes significantly compared to other preloaded, contained systems2.
