Wet field characteristics
HydroSet is formulated to harden in the presence of water, blood, and CSF, which allows for irrigation/ wash out of the surgery site during setting.2,3
HydroSet has been specifically designed to set quickly once implanted under normal physiological conditions, potentially minimising procedure time.1
HydroSet is a calcium phosphate cement that hardens to form hydroxyapatite and remodels to natural bone through osteoclastic resorption and new bone formation.1
HydroSet avoids thermal injury as it does not give off any potentially damaging heat as it hardens.1
