Bone cement helps restore functionality, provides elasticity to the zone between the prosthesis and the bone stock and maintains the mechanical stability of the prosthesis. Bone cement is composed of two components: PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate) amorphous powder and MMA (methyl methacrylate) liquid stabilizer. This category includes both antibiotic and nonantibiotic bone cement. The use of antibiotic-loaded bone cements allows for high concentrations of antibiotics to be administered to the local areas surrounding the implant, protecting it from germs and preventing infection. Nonantibiotic bone cement is used to fixate artificial joints to the bone and fill non-union fractures.
Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the bone cement devices market within Canada was expected to be over $30m in 2022.
