Prevention of fibrous layer formation between bone and adhesive bone cement: in vivo evaluation of bone impregnation with 4-META/MMA-TBB cement.

Abstract

We have studied a new adhesive bone cement, that consists of 4-methacryloyloxyethyl trimellitate anhydride (4-META) and methylmethacrylate (MMA) as monomers, tri-n-butyl borane (TBB) as the initiator, and polymethylmethacrylate powder (4-META/MMA-TBB cement). This cement has shown remarkable adhesive properties to bone in vitro. In this study, we assessed… (More)
