For indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions see Instructions for Use. Concurrent use of locally administered antibiotics may affect setting time, absorption and/or bone formation. It is the surgeon/healthcare professional’s responsibility to give due consideration to the details in the medicinal product marketing authorization in deciding whether it is appropriate for the patient under his/her care. The relevant Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC) must be consulted. The type and dose of medicinal substance should also be assessed according to the individual patient’s clinical circumstance.
