HIP SPACERS (SYNIMED)

ADVANTAGES:

  • Local release of antibiotics
  • Metal core ensures resistance to physiological and mechanical stresses
  • Prevents proximal femoral migration, facilitating surgical approach during final revision
  • Preservation of hip muscle function
  • Early patient rehabilitation through early mobilisation

MATERIALS

Bone cement loaded with high antibiotic
concentrations (gentamicin) and an internal reinforcement
structure of AISI 316L stainless steel.

KNEE SPACERS (SYNIMED)

ADVANTAGES:

  • Local release of antibiotics
  • Maintains joint space
  • Preserves joint movement
  • Simplifies the surgical approach as the patellar tendon is free from the adhesions produced by immobilisation
  • Maintains the extensor mechanism and preserves ligament function due to use
  • Preserves the functionality of the lateral ligaments
  • Better mobilisation range compared to block spacers
  • Reduces functional recovery period after definitive revision surgery

MATERIALS

Bone cement loaded with high concentrations of antibiotic (gentamicin).

SHOULDER SPACERS (SYNIMED)

ADVANTAGES:

  • Local release of antibiotics
  • Increased mechanical resistance due to internal reinforcement of a metal rod
  • Prevention of shoulder assessment and muscle retraction
  • Ease of revision and re-implantation
  • Maintenance of the shoulder muscle apparatus
  • Avoids rotator cuff retraction as the cuff can be fixed to the spacer
  • Early rehabilitation

MATERIALS

Bone cement loaded with high concentrations of antibiotic (gentamicin) and an internal reinforcement structure of AISI 316L stainless steel.

HIGH VISCOSITY BONE CEMENT
with GENTAMICIN (SYNIMED)

ADVANTAGES:

  • Easy mixing: immediate homogeneity of the mix
  • Long working time with a uniform, soft and easy-to-use mix
  • Short final hardening phase, which minimises micro-movements of the implant during setting
  • Excellent bone filling and mechanical retention
  • Homogeneous radiopacity
  • The addition of antibiotic does not affect the physical, mixing, handling or insertion properties of the bone cement
  • Sustained release of antibiotic
  • Significant antibiotic concentration in the spongiosa and cortical bone

MATERIALS

PMMA-based powder with antibiotic

LOW VISCOSITY BONE CEMENT
with GENTAMICIN (SYNIMED)

ADVANTAGES:

  • Easy mixing with perfect homogeneity
  • Prolonged flow phase with low viscosity, allowing easy application with a syringe
  • Reliable implant positioning and long-lasting fixation
  • A long working period with a soft, easy-to-use paste
  • Short final hardening phase, which reduces the risk of prosthesis micro-movements during the waiting time
  • Homogeneous radiopacity
  • The addition of antibiotic does not affect the physical, mixing, handling or insertion properties of the bone cement
  • Sustained release of antibiotic
  • Significant concentration of antibiotic in the spongiosa and cortical bone
