TRAUMACEM™ V+ Augmentation System

The TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone Cement is indicated for augmentation of the TFN-ADVANCED Proximal Femoral Nailing System (TFNA) through cannulated implants and instruments for patients with poor bone quality (e.g., osteoporosis).

The TRAUMACEM V+ is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement with specific indications for augmentation of a trauma device, allowing surgeons to inject a controlled amount of cement into the femoral head in patients with poor bone quality, reducing the risk of cut-out.

The TRAUMACEM V+ Augmentation System is offered for use with the TFNA System and builds on the list of comprehensive surgical options that the TFNA System offers.

Features & Benefits

Comprehensive Surgical Solutions

Comprehensive Surgical Solutions

The TFNA System provides an extensive range of proximal femoral nailing options, including:

Blade/screw head element

Locking options

Nail lengths & diameters

*Optional Augmentation

Head element design enables intraoperative decision making

Head element design enables intraoperative decision making

Fenestrated head elements perform equivalent to solid head elements, thus enabling choice of augmentation with a single implant design*.

Controlled Injection

Controlled Injection

Inject a controlled amount of cement into the femoral head using an injection cannula and fenestrated head element, providing strong implant fixation.

Specifically Selected

Initial viscosity of TRAUMACEM V+ Injectable Bone cement allows for cement injection immediately after mixing with no wait time. Cement working time begins immediately and lasts for up to 27 minutes at room temperature. Radiopaque design enables visualization under fluoroscopy to detect cement flow.

Indication Statement

TFNA System with Augmentation
Indications:

• Both the short and long TFNA Systems are additionally indicated for use with cleared, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement that can be delivered through the fenestrated blade or screw via a cannula in skeletally mature adults with risk of cut-out or device instability due to poor bone quality
Contraindications:
• Risk for intra-articular cement leakage
• Acute traumatic fractures with good bone quality
• Intracapsular hip fractures
• In the presence of active or incompletely treated infection at the site where the bone cement is to be applied
