The decreased autograft
volume results in decreased surgical trauma at the harvest site and should result in less patient post operative discomfort.
The surgeons noted that the patients treated with Healos demonstrated measurably less pain and rehabilitation time than did the autograft
In addition to the distal radius data announced today, the Company previously reported that in its US and Canadian orthopedic clinical trials GEM OS1 treatment appears as effective as autograft
for the stimulation of bone healing (fusion) in the foot and ankle without the pain and morbidity associated with the harvesting of the autograft
SpF Spinal Fusion Stimulators are proven to produce a 50% increase in success rates versus autograft
Trinity is unique in the field of biologics because it provides the three functions of autograft
necessary for bone formation: osteoconductivity, osteoinductivity and osteogenesis.
Now, through the OsteoCleanse(TM) autograft
cleaning service, LifeNet Health is pleased to apply this same technology to provide solutions in handling autograft
tissues and continuing to serve their mission of saving lives and restoring health.
Companies claim that these new features eliminate the need for autograft
bone harvested from the patient's iliac crest, reducing postoperative pain and morbidity at the donor site.
Our near-term commercial business is based on our VITOSS([R]) Bone Graft Substitute technology platform, which are designed to address the non-structural bone graft market by offering synthetic alternatives to the use of autograft
or cadaver-based bone material, and VITAGEL([R]) Surgical Hemostat, which is an adherent matrix and an impermeable barrier to blood flow.
has significant drawbacks, which include requiring a second surgical site to harvest the graft, pain and morbidity associated with the second surgery and inconsistent volume and quality of the bone material harvested.
to assess the safety and efficacy of GEM OS1 Bone Graft as a substitute for autograft
in foot and ankle fusion procedures.
As such, Trinity Matrix is a safe alternative to an autograft
, possessing hypoimmunogenic characteristics and posing fewer risks than a secondary bone harvesting procedure.
Persisting drawbacks, such as additional pain and stress caused by the autograft
harvesting surgery as well as the poor quality of bone among older patients has led to greater adoption of BGS for numerous orthopedic applications, particularly among younger physicians.
