Modification of Mechanical Properties, Polymerization Temperature, and Handling Time of Polymethylmethacrylate Cement for Enhancing Applicability in Vertebroplasty

Figure 4

Average maximum polymerization temperature () for bone cement samples with various contents of castor oil in the NTG and the PCG. The maximum polymerization temperature decreased with increasing castor oil content. However, for a given castor oil concentration (M5, M10, or M15), no significant differences were found between the PCG and the NTG, except for the standard PMMA samples (M0). . .
