  • Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) were prepared using mixtures of tetracalcium phosphate (TTCP) and dicalcium phosphate anhydrous (DCPA), with TTCP/ DCPA molar ratios of 1/1, 1/2, or 1/3, with the powder and water as the liquid.
  • CPC are made of one or several calcium phosphate (CaP) powders and an aqueous solution.
  • CPCs belong to the category of the low-temperature CaPs that are obtained by precipitation from an aqueous solution at or around room temperature.
  • Another calcium phosphate cement is also now available on the market in Europe: Calcibon® (Biomet-Merck). This cement is injectable and both animal and clinical studies have shown that it has appropriate mechanical properties which allow good results in the filling of cancellous bone defects.
  • Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) typically harden following the combination of a powder and an aqueous liquid.
  • Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are the emerging class of bone substitute materials.
  • The principle of CPCs is the cementing action of acidic and basic calcium phosphate compounds on wetting with an aqueous medium.
  • Calcium phosphate cements control bleeding and are safe to use in osteoporotic sternums during open heart surgery.
  • Calcium phosphate cement (CPC) hardens in situ to form hydroxyapatite and has been used in dental and craniofacial restorative applications.
  • In dentistry calcium phosphate cements play a secondary role at the moment, although they often have excellent bone repair properties.
  • CPC’s have been widely used as a bone tissue engineering scaffold material due to its excellent osteoconductivity, however, in vivo resorption and tissue in growth is slow.
  • Calcium phosphate cement, when mixed with water, forms a paste that selfhardens to form resorbable hydroxyapatite with excellent osteoconductivity and bone-replacing capability.
  • Orthopedic technology is constantly
    evolving due to the continuous
    improvement of fracture fixation and rehabilitation methods.
  • Callos is a next generation calcium phosphate cement indicated for filling bony defects in cancellous bone.
  • This unique biologic cement provides immediate high compressive support where host bone has been compromised.
  • The use of a calcium phosphate cement is optimal as a filler for structurally important metaphyseal defects due to its high mechanical strength and ability to maintain that strength throughout the entire healing process.
  • Clinically, this calcium phosphate cement (CPC) decreases postoperative morbidity and promotes early return to function in human patients with fractures of the distal aspect of the radius.
  • Calcium phosphate cement (CPC) sets to form hydroxyapatite, a major component of mineral bone, and is gaining increasing interest in bone repair applications.
  • It has been nearly 30 years since LeGeros and Brown and Chow first developed calcium phosphate cements for biomedical applications.
  • Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) belong to a very important class of biomaterials because of their potential to be utilized in the
    human body for bone repair and substitution.
  • Essentially, these applications stem from their associated biological and physiological properties - CPCs are highly bioactive, biocompatible and osteoconductive, i.e., cements are able to be resorbed by biological serum, allowing its progressive substitution by newly formed bone.
  • Use of a calcium phosphate cement for filling bone defects has many advantages over particulates or porous-solid blocks.
  • The tensile and compressive strengths of the calcium phosphate cement were low compared to other calcium phosphates.
  • Several calcium phosphate cements have been developed and have potential use in orthopedic field.
  • Of these different CPC, the type of precipitation furnishes a classification of the cement type: brushite, hydroxyapatite, calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite, or amorphous calcium phosphate.
  • The most common and important class of CPC is transformed into nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite (HA) during the setting reaction.
  • To compare percutaneous transpedicular vertebroplasty using calcium phosphate cement (CPC) versus conservative treatment for osteoporotic vertebral fractures.
  • The development of calcium phosphate cements started almost three decades ago with the formulation of in situ-setting calcium phosphate pastes for dental repair and restoration applications.
  • Self-hardened calcium phosphate cement possesses great biocompatibility and excellent osteoconductivity and has found a variety of applications, such as dental and craniofacial repairs, in the orthopaedic area.
  • Approximately there are 300,000 surgeries which use calcium phosphate bone cement for fracture fixation in the U.S annually.
  • Use of calcium phosphate cement offers the potential for resorption of the cement over time and replacement with new bone as a biological method to restore vertebral body mass and avoid potential thermal cord injury.
  • The most recent calcium phosphate cement to be introduced to the market is a-BSM from Etex Corp.
