Product Overview

A fortifying osteoconductive biocement that combines industry leading compressive strength with superior flow characteristics.

Fortera is a biocompatible, self-setting, gradually resorbable, calcium phosphate cement, supplied in a sterile, single use kit. After briefly mixing the product components at the point of use, the material transforms into a paste, capable of flowing through a 16 gauge cannula. Fortera has a working time up to 7 minutes, after which the material will begin to set. Upon setting, the material converts to hydroxyapatite, the mineral composition of native human bone.


Performance Characteristics

A 3.5mm outer diameter x 150mm length cannula is provided in each kit. Refer to package insert for additional product and safety information.
