Gentafix3 MV is a ready-to-use, medium viscosity cement, specifically developed for the latest medical cementation techniques.
It contains an aminoglycoside antibiotic, gentamicin. Its wide spectrum of activity makes it effective against the majority of bacteria responsible for infections associated with orthopaedic surgery.
It comes in the form of an ampoule of sterile liquid monomer and a sachet of sterile polymer powder.
The product complies with the ISO 5833 Standard.
GENTAFIX3 MV cement with gentamicin is a bone cement indicated for arthroplasty operations of the hip, knee and other joints, for stabilising plastic and metallic prosthetic implants on bone in reconstruction surgery and for reoperations on infected arthroplasties. These cements are indicated for stabilising prosthetics by second intention, for changing infected prosthetics in two stages after initially treating the infection.
The maximum temperature of 68°C reached during the polymerisation of GENTAFIX3 MV lies well below that required by the ISO 5833 Standard, thus reducing the danger of bone necrosis.
The physical properties of GENTAFIX3 MV cement largely exceed the requirements of the ISO 5833 Standard, ensuring perfect long-term physical integrity.
The cement must be stored unopened in its original packaging in a clean, dry place away from direct light and at a temperature of 25°C maximum. Keep it away from any source of flame.
