Hey Boneheads.....I have some femoral specimens that contain a fair amount of
bone cement. Does anyone know if I can embed these in plastic (Spurr's or
PMMA) and still preserve the cement for ground sections? Also, since the doc
has requested a few decals on some of these specimens, what is the best way
to dissolve the cement in order to decalcify and embed in paraffin? Am I
asking the impossible???
Thanks in advance for any assistance!!
