Three circumstances should be met to form HO: osteogenic precursor cell, an inducing agent and an appropriate environment consisting of the tissues predisposing osteogenesis (6).
These conditions include an inducing agent, an osteogenic precursor cell, and an environment conducive to osteogenesis.
Bioactive glass currently is considered one of the most biocompatible materials in the bone regeneration field due to its bioactivity, osteoconductivity (a scaffold's ability to support cell attachment and subsequent bone matrix deposition and formation) and osteoinductivity (a scaffold that encourages osteogenic precursor cells to differentiate into mature bone-forming cells).
