BoneSource

BoneSource

A self-setting, hydroxyapatite (calcium phosphate) cement used in repairing neurosurgical burr holes, contiguous craniotomy cuts and other cranial defects, as well as in the augmentation and restoration of bony contour in the craniofacial skeleton.

BoneSource
• Hardens to form hydroxyapatite and remodels to natural bone by osteoclastic resorption and new bone formation;
• Isothermic during the hardening phase;
• Forms a sculptable calcium phosphate paste with extended working time for contourability;
• Maintains shape and volume over time.
