Modern Cementing Technique (MCT)

Implant, Cement, Bone

The Modern Cementing Technique is a standardised and proven procedure.1,2,3 The objective of MCT in facilitating long term implant stability is to optimise cement quality and the interfaces between both implant-cement and cement-bone.4,5

Zimmer Biomet’s comprehensive array of bone cement and products for mixing and delivery, pressurisation and bone-bed preparation makes for one of the most complete portfolios for Modern Cementing Technique in the market today. 

Clinical Results

The MCT for Hip, compared to earlier techniques, has been linked to improved clinical results.6

Linked to a 20% reduction for the risk of revision.6

Bone Bed preparation

Preparation of the bone bed with a pulsative lavage system, like the Pulsavac® Plus Wound Debridement System, helps to ensure solid cement fixation. 1

Bone Cement

Zimmer Biomet’s extensive experience with bone cement and cementing systems has allowed us to help in the treatment of millions of patients worldwide.    Zimmer Biomet offers reliable bone cements of different viscosities for diverse applications, with and without antibiotics and easy handling.7, 8

Mixing and Collecting Under Vacuum

Reduces both micro and macro pores.9,10,11,12,13

Clinically Proven


MCT Knee addresses implant loosening and the objective is to provide long-term implant stability in knee arthroplasty. Based on scientific data and findings by Zimmer Biomet.1,2,14,4,15,16,17,10,11,12,18,19, 20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,9,36, 37,38,13,39,40,41,42,43,8,44,45,46,


The use of a distal plug, cement gun, pulsatile lavage and cement pressurizing devices have been shown to significantly improve long-term outcomes.9
