  • Publication number: 20110237705
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system for preparing a polymerized bone cement, including two components reacting with each other when they are mixed to form a solid polymer material. The first component may include a biocompatible acrylic polymer and an initiator capable of initiating a polymerization reaction. The second component may include a monomer capable of dissolving an acrylic polymer, a polymerization activator and a polymerization inhibitor, system in which the second component also includes a biocompatible acrylic polymer dissolved in said monomer, identical or different from the polymer of the first component with an average molar mass greater than 1,000,000 g/mol and a residual initiator content of less than 0.1% to form a gel with determined viscosity. Another object of the invention is a composition designed to constitute the second component of as system used to prepare such cement.
