The major objective of the current review is to highlight the prime importance of bone cements particularly monetite cement as filler to treat various bone defects which may result due to osteoporosis, some accidents, some trauma disease or any other orthopedic surgical disorders. Previous studies showed that polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), calcium phosphate cements (CPCs), dicalcium phosphate (DCP) cement and acrylic polymer cements have been employed to improve the bone defects, but these materials have a certain issue of insitu setting. To overcome these problems, concentration was swiftly diverted towards monetite cement which revealed better results. Therefore, in this review, more focus has been given to the monetite cement. In this work, a brief but very productive discussion has also been inducted about the various synthetic routes to synthesize monetite cement and its properties which will help the readers to get key information about the growing significance of monetite cement as a bone filler and its future use and importance. The main theme of this review is to highlight the tremendous achievements achieved in the monetite cementing materials and their further scope in the near future as to upgrade their properties and use in the biomedical field.


Lanthanum doped dicalcium phosphate bone cements for potential use as filler for bone defects
Motameni, Ali; Alshemary, Ammar Z.; Dalgıç, Ali Deniz; Keskin, Dilek; Evis, Zafer (2021-03-01)
The bone defects arising as a result of trauma should be filled to provide a framework to support and encourage the growth of new and living bone tissues. Among the many synthetic bone graft substitutes, self-hardening calcium phosphate (CP) cements have been widely used to repair hard tissue defects. In this study, pure dical-cium phosphate (DCP) and lanthanum (La) modified dicalcium phosphate (La-DCP) bone cements were prepared based on acid/base reaction between beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta TCP) (or L...
Biodegradable hydroxyapatite - Polymer composites
Durucan, Caner (2001-04-01)
The fracture of bone due to trauma or due to natural aging is one of the most frequent types of tissue failures. Treatment frequently requires the implantation of ct temporary or permanent prosthesis. The implanted materials may include the components of artificial joints, plates, and screws for fracture fixation. Typically, such implants are intended only to provide structural support or to serve as templates for bone re-growth. In general they are intended to remain in place for the life of the patient or...
Etiology of senile osteoporosis - A hypothesis
Atik, O. Sahap; Uslu, M. Murad; Eksioglu, Fatih; Satana, Tolgay (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2006-02-01)
Osteoporosis is a major health problem characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing patients to an increased risk of fracture. It may cause morbidity and mortality in elderly men and women. The etiologic factors that lead to senile osteoporosis still are unclear.
A review of bioceramic porous scaffolds for hard tissue applications: Effects of structural features
Jodati, Hossein; Yilmaz, Bengi; Evis, Zafer (Elsevier BV, 2020-07-01)
Tissue engineering has acquired remarkable attention as an alternative strategy to treat and restore bone defects during recent years. A scaffold is a fundamental component for tissue engineering, on which cells attach, proliferate and differentiate to form new desirable functional tissue. The composition, and structural features of scaffolds, including porosity and pore size, play a fundamental role in the success of tissue-engineered construct. This review summarizes the effect of porosity and pore size o...
Numerical aspects of anisotropic failure in soft biological tissues favor energy-based criteria: A rate-dependent anisotropic crack phase-field model
Gueltekin, Osman; Dal, Hüsnü; Holzapfel, Gerhard A. (2018-04-01)
A deeper understanding to predict fracture in soft biological tissues is of crucial importance to better guide and improve medical monitoring, planning of surgical interventions and risk assessment of diseases such as aortic dissection, aneurysms, atherosclerosis and tears in tendons and ligaments. In our previous contribution (Gultekin et al., 2016) we have addressed the rupture of aortic tissue by applying a holistic geometrical approach to fracture, namely the crack phase-field approach emanating from va...
