The histological response of bone to inert bone wax, conventional polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), and a new formulation of bone cement, methylmethacrylate/n-decylmethacrylate/isobornylmethacrylate (MMA/DMA/IBMA) was investigated in canine tibial diaphysis. The new formulation of cement is characterized by a reduced exothermic temperature at curing and reduced leakage of chemicals to the adjacent bone. In comparison with bone wax, the MMA/DMA/IBMA bone cement did not differ significantly with… CONTINUE READING
