OsteoFlo-G, the Synthetic Bone Substitute is indicated for bony voids surgically created or osseous defects created from traumatic injury to the bone. The performances of the Synthetic Bone Substitute are the filling of bone defects and the bony ingrowth from local osseous tissue onto the surface of the product.
This product is a microporous and macroporous biphasic calcium phosphate ceramic consisting of 60% Hydroxyapatite (HA) and 40% beta-Tricalcium Phosphate (ß-TCP) particles. It is a resorbable product which means that it gradually degrades over time and is replaced by new bone. The total resorption of the product depends on numerous factors such as its size and volume, the location of the defect, the surgical technique and the health status of the patient. It is admitted that an optimal bone regeneration is always observed before the complete resorption of the product.
