The highly-organized living tissue is superior to transplanting Intact Bone Cores vs. Morselized Bone
- Harvesting intact cancelleous bone cores without disrupting pieces of bone. Intact grafts maintain the micro-vascular network within the graft promoting bone callus formation/remodeling and do not exhibit extensive resorption.¹ ²
- Intact bone exploits the biology of normal fracture healing rather than through slow creeping substitution associated with the slow incorporation of a non-vascularized graft.¹
- Research demonstrates the enhanced survival of a bone graft as long as its primary blood supply is preserved. A living bone graft will shorten the time for boney union because the reconstructed bone is comparable to a bone with a double fracture. ¹ ²
- Allogenic or synthetic bone chips hydrated with marrow can be packed around the living bone graft/core to accelerate anastomosis into the graft and minimize morbidity.¹ ²
Minimally Invasive Bone Grafts
- Vascularized and cancellous autograft shows optimal skeletal incorporation but is limited by morbidity concerns.³
- Using the Marrow Cellution™ Graft Delivery Syringe and the Marrow Cellution™ Bone Core Harvest Device, the clinician can create a combination graft of a vascularized intact bone core in the center of the graft surrounded by allogeneic, autologous or synthetic bone chips hydrated with cellular marrow aspirate.
- Higher quality, less quantity, delivered appropriately minimizes host morbidity.
