BonAlive® is a 100% synthetic, osteoconductive, osteostimulative*(**) silica-based bone graft substitute that is used for bone cavity filling in orthopaedic and cranio-maxillofacial surgery including jaw surgery. BonAlive® bonds firmly to bone, and promotes new bone formation while it naturally inhibits bacterial growth***.
One of the biggest players in the global trade in human tissue has suspended its partnership with suppliers in Ukraine, where authorities have carried out multiple investigations over allegations of illegal tissue recovery.
Zimmer Dental, a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, has announced receiving FDA approval to use the term “osseoincorporation” to describe the bone- healing process made possible with the Zimmer Trabecular Metal Dental Implant.
This investigation focused on a comparison of clinical and histological characteristics after sinus floor augmentation with biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP, Straumann BoneCeramic®), anorganic bovine bone (ABB, Geistlich Bio-Oss®), mineralized cancellous bone allograft (MCBA, Zimmer Puros®), or autologous bone (AB).
To study the long-term outcome of implant survival rate, soft and hard tissue conditions and prosthetic status in a group of individuals treated with either Astra Tech TiOblast or Brånemark turned implants supporting a full-arch bridge.
SinuSys Corporation (Palo Alto, CA) has received the go-ahead in the EU to market its AerOs Sinus Dilation System, a device developed for opening up the sinus ostia to restore proper drainage and ventilation.
The company lauds the AerOs for its slow expansion, unlike balloon dilators that can be uncomfortable and may require general anesthesia. The tiny device is inserted by the physician and set to expand, while the patient plays a round of Angry Birds, and sixty minutes later it has fully expanded and ready for removal.
This study compared two groups of patients who were elderly and edentulous, one group included subjects who had mandibular overdentures supported by two implants (Group I); the other groups wore conventional complete dentures (Group II).
DM-Bone is a ceramic constituted of two-phase of silicon (<1wt%) contained coralline 60% hydroxyapatite and 40% beta-tricalcium phosphate.
Small amounts of silicates stimulate the action of osteoblasts and, in consequence, the new bone formation. Moreover, silicates increase the mechanical strength, a very important factor in particular for porous ceramics, and also accelerate the bioactivitiy of apatite.
ZURICH, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Swiss dental implant maker NobelBiocare said it expected a modest decline in theglobal dental implant market for the rest of the year, as itposted second-quarter profit in...
SmartBone is a new composite bone substitute based on a novel concept of biomaterials assembly: it is obtained combining natural mineral structures with bioactive polymers. During integration with the host, it allows formation of new bone by ingrowth of patients cells into it while biopolymers degrade.
A novel coated mesh for soft tissue repair with a bioabsorbable Omega 3 fatty acid (O3FA) cross-linked gel. The semi-solid coating is carefully formulated to provide controlled incorporation and penetration of cellular remodeling as a soft tissue repair material. Animal studies have shown resorption of the coating occurring upon implantation and continuing over a 3 to 6 month period. The animal studies indicate that bio-resorption occurs with decreased inflammation as evidenced by decreased presence of mononuclear cells (morphologically characterized by macrophages and foreign body giant cells)
Taken our results together, we can suggest that periosteal-derived cells present an interesting potential to differentiate in mature osteoblast able to promote mineralization in vitro by incorporating to ECM circulating calcium from extracellular compartment. From our point of view, this source of osteogenic cells can be explored by bioengineers in order to advance therapeutic protocols able to solve bone degenerative lesions.
The NovoGen MMX Bioprinter™ is a novel hardware and software platform at the forefront of bioprinting research and development. The NovoGen MMX™ was developed to meet challenges in biological research.
A team of experts in mechanics, materials science, and tissue engineering at Harvard has created an extremely stretchy and tough gel that may suggest a new method for replacing damaged cartilage in human joints.
ZURICH, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Swiss dental implant maker Nobel Biocare Holding AG is hoping to grow at a high single-or low double-digit rate, its chief executive was quoted as saying on Sunday.The economic...
A study conducted at the University of Granada has demonstrated that ibuprofen – a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) – has beneficial effects on bone repair after a fracture or following bone surgery.
