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.
- 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 bone1.
