Bioactive Compound Can Be Molded to Fit Grafting Site:

NovaBone Products has introduced a new line of biologically active bone-graft substitutes that are designed to enhance the body’s natural healing process by facilitating rapid vascularization and mineralization. Suspended in a rapidly-absorbable binder, the moldable material contains a calcium phosphosilicate with a continuous macroporous structure. Known as MacroPor-Si+, the product can be used to repair osseous defects throughout the skeletal system.

Founded in 2002, the manufacturer offers a variety of silicon- and calcium-ion controlled-release products that stimulate the regeneration of cortical and cancellous bone.
