Vacuum-Mixing Devices, Orthopedic Cement
Definition : Devices used to mix orthopedic (or bone) cement. They typically consist of a mixing box, into which the powder and liquid components are added, and a vacuum chamber. A vacuum is applied while the cement constituents are manually mixed with a spatula. This method of mixing may reduce porosity and enhance the strength of cement.
