Callos

  • Impact
    Impact is mostly used for open voids and has a 4-minute setting time
  • Inject
    Inject is used for minimally invasive procedures and has a 6-minute setting time
  • Ease of Use
    Callos Bone Void Filler has a mixing and delivery system that results in consistent mixing every time. It sets quickly in an aqueous environment and can be manipulated post-implantation, giving the surgeon an opportunity to refine the reconstruction.

The Acumed Callos Bone Void Filler is a synthetic calcium phosphate cement that is indicated for filling bony defects in cancellous bone.

It offers high compressive support for host bone that has been compromised. 1

Key Features

  • Handling: Callos sets in 4-6 minutes after implantation in a warm, aqueous environment. Additionally Callos is mixed in a rotary mixer and can be manipulated post-implantation to help refine bone reconstruction.
  • High compressive strength: Callos has been tested to show that it has a compressive strength twice that of cancellous bone (1).
