PALACOS® Bone Cement

PALACOS® Bone Cement


Trust in Green.

PALACOS® R is a high-viscosity bone cement. With raw materials of consistently high quality and a proven formula, PALACOS® cements have made a positive contribution towards successful surgical interventions for over 50 years. Characteristically green in colour, PALACOS® contrasts optically with the surrounding tissue and thus facilitates easier handling during surgery.

PALACOS® Bone Cement

Low Revision Rate (1)

Clinical documentation reveals longer survival rates of implants that have been anchored with PALACOS® cement. Compared with other cements, far fewer revisions are necessary after 10 years for implants cemented with PALACOS®.

Benefits of Antibiotic Prophylaxis

All PALACOS® cements are also available with added Gentamicin. The local release of the antibiotic minimizes the risk of infection in the implant with reduced systemic load (2). Today, PALACOS® R+G is known for very low revision rates in cemented endoprostheses (3).
