The company also announced the full commercial launch of the graft, which has been formulated to provide superior bone-forming capabilities to support a wide range of spine and orthopaedic procedural applications.
OsteoCove is developed from a blend of β-tricalcium phosphate (ß-TCP) and hydroxyapatite (HA), along with type-I bovine collagen.
It has a granule surface structure specifically engineered to stimulate a bone-forming response, as demonstrated by its ability to grow bone in a muscle pouch model.
The surface chemistry and microporosity of OsteoCove foster bone formation, surpassing the performance of other comparable commercially available advanced synthetic grafts.
Orthofix chief scientific officer Dr Frank Vizesi said: “Using the same disciplined R&D approach we have historically taken with our internally processed demineralised bone matrix solutions, we created a product that challenges the performance expectations of typical synthetic bone graft substitutes.
