Orthopedic Bone Material (Cement and Casting) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Artificial joints have been anchored with bone cements for more than half a century. Bone cement plays the important role of an elastic zone by filling the space between the prosthesis and the bone. The necessity of bone cement is supported by the fact that the human hip is acted on by 10-12 times the body weight and therefore the forces acting on hips should be absorbed by the bone cement to ensure the safety of artificial implants. An orthopedic cast is a shell made from plaster, encasing a limb to hold a broken bone in place until total recovery is made. With an aging global...
