Mendec® Cranio is an acrylic resin developed for cranioplasty procedures. It is a safe and reliable solution for repairing skull holes, craniotomy cuts, and other cranial defects. This resin is extremely malleable and perfectly adapts to the cranial defect. Once the resin has hardened, it can be drilled and milled. It can also be used for fixation by means
of plates and screws or suture threads. The formula includes barium sulphate, which makes resin radiopaque and thus perfectly visible on X‑rays.
Malleability: shortly after mixing, Mendec® Cranio becomes extremely malleable, allowing for prolonged surgical manipulation. Mendec® Cranio remains malleable for a long time, allowing the reconstruction of the bone defect. Once the resin has hardened, it can be drilled and milled. It can also
be used for fixation by means of plates and screws or suture threads.
Perfect reconstruction: thanks to its malleability, Mendec® Cranio can reconstruct the cranial defect, achieving excellent aesthetics. Its texture keeps the given shape even before the resin hardens. Therefore, exothermic polymerisation must occur on an external medium, away from the meninges.
Safety: PMMA is a biocompatible material with excellent mechanical properties: elasticity, resistance and lightness. PMMA is widely used in clinical applications. Its safety has been reliably demonstrated.
Reduced toxicity: thanks to our special production process, Mendec® Cranio needs less liquid (MMA). This means reduced toxicity and lower polymerisation temperature.
