Bone

US-based medical device firm Novabone Products has launched a new Bioactive Strip.

The Bioactive Strip is a bone graft composed of purified fibrillar collagen and resorbable bioactive synthetic morsels.

It is 95% bioglass dispersed in a collagen matrix in a preformed shape which is cross linked using a process that avoids the use of aldehydes, alleviating any concern of residual aldehyde contamination.

This is the third technology platform from Novabone Products, provided to the orthopedic community based on the combination of bioactive glass and bovine collagen.

The cross linked device retains its shape even after manipulation, or hydration with bone marrow aspirate.

Novabone Products president Art Wotiz said: "This September, we announced the launch of MacroFORM Packable Graft and MacroFORM Composite.

"Both of the products are designed to be hydrated with bone marrow aspirate and then molded into a putty type format.

"They were the first of a new bioactive collagen line designed for use in orthopedic surgeries.

"Both of the products are designed to be hydrated with bone marrow aspirate and then molded into a putty type format."

"We feel the strip will be well-received because of its ability to absorb and retain bone marrow aspirate while it remains to be easy to handle and place."

The strips’ open structure allows for rapid vascularisation and mineralisation, and permits complete device absorption and replacement by new bone.

Optimal composition and pore size of the strip is designed to mimic cancellous bone.

The company also offers bioactive products, such as Novabone Bioactive Synthetic Putty, Novabone Bioactive Synthetic Putty MIS Cartridge Delivery System, Novabone MacroPor Si+ Bioactive Bone Graft, Novabone OS – Si+ Morsels Porous Synthetic Bone Graft and Novabone Osteostimulative Morsels.
