Abstract

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement has been used in orthopedics for more than 70 years. The advantages of PMMA bone cement include high compressive strength, stickiness, deformable ability and rapid self-setting. But the heat produced during polymerization would hinder the recovery. In order to improve the properties, in this research we added tetracalcium phosphate (TTCP) into polymethylmethacrylate cement as TP cement. A serious of characterizations including thermal property study, compression strength and micro-CT evaluation were carried out. According to the results, the polymerization heat was significantly reduced for the TP cement. The compressive strength was also enhanced with TTCP addition. TP-10 had better properties. As to thermal tests, TP-40 showed better results. Micro CT was used to monitor the composition inside the materials, and the results showed that TTCP was well dispersed in the PMMA matrix. The composite PMMA bone cement adding with tetracalcium phosphate seemed to be a potential candidate as low temperature product.
