Cohesion® Bone Cement is a PolyMethyl MethAcrylat (PMMA) implant with specific and unique prop- erties used for the Fixation of fractured vertebral bodies. Especially in the case of complex fragmented fractures with underlying pathologies affecting bone quality, it is of utmost importance to have a full control over the cement injection and reliable long term results through:

• Appropriate high viscosity

The Cohesion® Bone Cement has been formulated to reach an optimal viscosity of a minimum 350 Pa.s at injection time, allowing the cement to create a sphere-shape, important to avoid leakage.

• Sustained high viscosity

Cohesion® Bone Cement has been designed to allow an appropriate preparation – while avoiding any waiting time. The injection or dough phase has been designed to be exceptionally long, nearly 18 minutes at 18°c for a comfortable management of the fixation phase.

• High Radio-opacity

With 45% of Zirconium oxide as radio-opacifiant, Cohesion® Bone Cement has been formulated to provide state- of-the-art visibility while being injected.

Long term results

Based on more than 50 years of excellent PMMA clinical history, Cohesion® Bone Cement, is a fully biocom- patible implant made with the latest generation of compounds.

Cohesion® Bone Cement along with the use of Vexim’s SpineJack® system both preserve bone trabeculae and improve cement interdigitation.
