44) In addition, it stimulates the formation of new bone by osteogenesis, osteoinduction, and osteoconduction, (20) it has an anatomical structure that allows cellular invasion while providing structural support to the receptor site, and is an important source of type I collagen, which facilitates the processes of vascularity and resilience, thus promoting osteoblastic activation.
Generally, critical bone defects are treated with bone grafts, preferably autogenous, that favor regeneration of the bone tissue by means of osteoconduction, osteoinduction, and osteogenesis, (ALVES et al.
Suitable for general bone grafting applications, AlloStem is similar to autograft bone because it provides the three key properties necessary for bone formation: osteoconduction, osteoinduction and osteogenesis.
Osteoconduction exerted by methylpyrrolidinone chitosan used in dental surgery.
An ideal bone graft substitute should provide three elements: Scaffolding for osteoconduction, growth factors for osteoinduction and progenitor cells for osteogenesis.
2 Similarly, Polylactic acid/BG scaffolds exhibited good biocompatibility and induced osteogenesis with minimum inflammation1, where as Calcium sulphate coatings on bioglass promoted better osteoconduction in bone repair process.
Conclusions: Novel BTE products possess remarkable osteoconduction and osteoinduction capacities, and exhibit balanced degradation with osteogenesis.
