Mectaplug cement restrictor is a diaphyseal plug for orthopaedic use. It is designed to occlude the medullary cavity before the introduction of acrylic cement.
COMPLETELY RESORBABLE PLUG
Mectaplug is a mixture of neutral compound (gelatine, water, glycerol and methylparahydroxybenzoate) which makes it biocompatible. Mectaplug is completely resorbed within a few days at 37°C and resists the temporary temperature rise generated by polymerisation of acrylic cement.
IDEAL FIT TO THE SHAPE OF THE MEDULLARY CANAL
The gelatine based composition guarantees specific elastic properties, that optimize the occlusion of the medullary canal and offer a better resistance to cement pressurisation in comparison to a more rigid plastic plug.
EASIER REVISION PROCEDURE
The surgeon does not need to remove Mectaplug in case of revision surgery.
The Mectaplug is available in 6 sizes from 8 to 18 mm, with a 2 mm increment between sizes.
The Mectaplug is delivered with a flexible instrumentation, which is:
SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR AMIS, effective for all the surgical approaches, thanks to its flexible design;
COMPACT: the tray is composed only by the plug handle, special adaptors that guarantees a good stability during plug positioning and trial olives.
