Inorganic cements have found utility in tissue replacement since the late nineteenth century, one of the first examples being calcium sulphates in the augmentation of bone defects. In the intervening period of time countless formulations of calcium phosphate, sulphate and silicate cement have been researched and as a result, many are now commercially available for a variety of biomedical applications. This review summarises the applications, formulations, advantages and drawbacks of such inorganic cements, suggesting future work that will drive progress in this area into the future of biomaterials research.
