Imagine the variety of uses for a bone allograft material that is compressible, has wicking characteristics, and maintains the biocompatability of human bone. Finally, a new solution for "tight space" bone voids, SteriSorb™ brings this advantage and more for your approach to bone augmentation.
This void filler, constructed of 100% cancellous bone, assumes characteristics of a sponge by absorbing saline, blood, or bone marrow aspirate. The graft compresses to 1/2 its original size (or less) then expands back to its former size to secure a better "fit" for augmenting spinal fusion and general orthopaedic surgeries. This gives the surgeon more flexibility, decreases surgery time, reduces the potential for migration, and eliminates the leaching commonly seen with puttys and gels.
The porous structure of the cancellous bone used in SteriSorb™ encourages excellent osteoconductivity and promotes rapid vascularization of the allograft to incorporate the recipient's natural bone growth factors and stimulate new bone growth. Such rehydration of bone implants has been discussed in the literature for years (Mulliken, Ann. Surg., 1981), but only recently has technology allowed us to commercially produce such an innovative solution.
