Boneceram

Boneceram-Bone void filler-

Device Description

Boneceram is a bone substitute which is composed of hydroxyapatite.
There are two porosity types.
Boneceram P is a porous type.
Boneceram K is a dense type.
Both types have good biocompatibility.
Boneceram is mainly used as a space holder to retain space due to its strength and various unique shapes.

* Boneceram has been available in Japan since 1988.

[Launched countries: Japan, Hong Kong]
