Two Component Bone Cement Composition for Vertebroplasty
The invention is directed to an intrinsically radio-opaque two component bone cement, comprising a first component which contains at least one acrylate monomer and a second component which contains at least one initiator for the polymerisation of said acrylate monomer, wherein the at least one iodine containing radio-opacity providing polymer is present in at least one of the two components and wherein the cement, when mixed into a slurry has a viscosity, which is sufficiently low to allow injection of the cement slurry through a needle with a diameter in the range of 10-15 G used in percutaneous vertebroplasty.
