Synthetic and bioactive bone graft substitute
Glassbone® granules is indicated in regenerative medicine as a synthetic bioactive bone substitute which comes in the shape of granules. Glassbone® combines natural biological action and optimum safety for reliable and reproducible results.
Based on innovative technology, Glassbone® is a bioactive glass 45S5 ceramic composed of silicon, sodium, phosphorous and calcium oxides. All of these elements are naturally present in the human body and are key components in the osteogenesis process. This bioactivity property, marks a new stage in bone regeneration products.
The formulation of Glassbone® brings excellent biocompatibility level and drastically reduce the risk of pathogen agents transmission.
Glassbone® technology is fully developed in France with local partners to ensure highest quality.
Glassbone® offers surgeons and patients optimum safety during implantation for a natural and effective bone restoration, for all indications encountered in their daily practice.
Glassbone®, Bone graft substitute is a medical device class III, manufactured by NORAKER and whose conformity assessment was conducted by LNE / G-MED (0459).
Glassbone® is indicated for filling bone defects. Read the instructions supplied with the product for complete information on indications, cons-indications, warnings and precautions, and adverse effects.
Indications and recommendations
Glassbone® granules, a synthetic and bioactive bone substitute, is indicated for bone substitution, to fill, rebuild and fuse bone defects, when autologous solutions are not applicable or sufficient, pending the regeneration of new bone.
Filling bone defects in orthopedic surgery:
- Filling bone defects after tumor resection,
- Vertebral Arthrodesis
- Prosthesis revision
- Tibia Osteotomy (…)
Filling bone defects in oral and cranio maxillofacial surgery:
- Periodontal / infrabony defects
- Ridge augmentation
- Filling tooth sockets for ridge maintenance following extraction
- Filling bone defects such as cyst or dental granuloma
- Sinus floor augmentation (…)
Bioactive Bone Substitute: available references
Glassbone® Granules has to be mixed normal saline solution, autologous bone, patient blood or PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin). In order to enhance the host site vascularization, heighten the host cortical bone walls. When placing the graft material, pack it with a compress moistened by normal saline solution. Excess filling is recommended.
