New analysis from Frost & Sullivan,Innovations in Bone Healing , finds that novel ceramic and polymer biomaterial technologies have improved the biocompatibility, osteoconduction and osteoinduction of bone grafts.
While osteoconduction is the ability of a material to support growth of bone over its surface, osteoinduction is the ability to induce osteogenesis in a non osseous tissue [4].
It is commonly accepted that 100-350 [micro]m pores are needed for bone regeneration and osteoconduction.
The massive amounts of cancellous bone that can be obtained from the inner table of the pelvis provide all the desired properties of osteoconduction, osteoinduction, and osteogenicity.
24) Such grafts are described as possessing all 3 mechanisms that promote bone healing: osteoinduction, osteoconduction, and osteogenesis.
One way to solve the problem of obtaining elastic porous coatings of required thickness is application of polymer composites (Barinov & Komlev, 2005) consisting of at least two phases: 1) organic phase in the form of bioinert poly-mer bonding agent possessing elasticity, adhesion, bioinertness and ability for sterilization; 2) inorganic phase in the form of bioactive filling consisting of fine-dispersed calcium-phosphate powders of differ-ent chemical composition which stimulate biological processes of osteoinduction and osteoconduction (Shutov, 2009).
Osteoconduction is the process whereby microscopic and macroscopic scaffolding is provided for inward migration of cellular elements involved in bone formation (e.
The method is also well adapted to phosphocalcic or polymer bone substitutes and can be used to follow their bioerosion and their osteoconduction properties (Ruhe et al.
Bone void filler to repair bone defects by which the primary action is a physical means (matrix) to provide a volume and scaffold for osteoconduction, where an additional medicinal substance is incorporated to assist and complement the action of the matrix by enhancing the growth of bone cells
The moldable putty contains cortical-cancellous chips which creates a 3-D scaffold for optimized osteoconduction.
2]] in this specific indication: osteoconduction, when bone graft material serves as a support for new bone growth; osteoinduction, in which immature cells are recruited and stimulated to develop into bone-forming cells or "osteoblasts" and osteogenesis, the production of new bone.
