Bone cement is a sterile form of Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) originally formulated for use in hip replacement. It is available with or without antibiotics and a range of viscosities. In addition to hip replacement bone cement, veterinarians have found a wide range of other applications.
There are two types that offer different viscosities for different applications. All consist of liquid/powder portions that are mixed together.
