Bio Materials

Synthetic : Reliable, predictable and reproducible results

100% synthetic, 100% reliable, 45% bioactive elements.

GlassBONE™ belongs to the family of bioactive glasses, a synthetic and bioactive bone substitute. It is composed of mineral elements such as silicon, calcium, sodium and phosphorus. All of the mineral ions that make up GlassBONE™ are naturally present in the human body and are known to play physiologically crucial roles in the process of bone formation and mineralisation. This composition overcomes the risk of transmission of pathogens and provides optimum safety for patients and surgeons.

Characteristics

The 45% of silicon in the compound of GlassBONE™ ensures bioactivity in the process of natural bone regeneration.

It can be used for filling TTA cages, spinal cages, spinal fusion, trauma, bone defects, dental and tibia osteotomy. It comes in granules or injectable putty. Granules are mixed with blood, autologous bone or saline prior to use.

 

We can provide GlassBONE™ in different sizes and volumes highlighted in the charts.

GlassBONE ™ is a bioactive synthetic substitute for bone regeneration in orthopedic, traumatic, spinal and craniomaxillofacial surgery. GlassBONE ™ is the new standard of the latest generation of bone regeneration substitutes. It has been designed to provide superior properties and performance and a faster and safer healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions, we have answers

You wont see it as clearly as a titanium screw but it is visible. If you X-ray 3-6 months post operatively you will see the bone ingrowth as the Glassbone resorbs.

Approximately 6 months for the smallest size granules; the larger the size the longer it will take.

Yes, you can as well as blood and bone chips from the patient. You can also add sterile saline to mix the granules if no autologous blood is available. PRP has also shown to give good results.

No, it is not. It is used for bone defects and to restore volume. It could not be used without implants to support the fracture or keep the fracture in place.

Since 2000. It is CE marked and is a class 3 device in the USA for human medicine.

Yes it is conductive and bio active.

The dissolution of Glassbone induces ion exchanges with biological fluids enabling the formation of a mineral layer, direct biological binding between the biomaterial and the bone. This mineral layer prevents any micro movements of granules in the bone defect, which would impede osteo integration.

Osteo integration of the biomaterial provides stabilisation of the bone defect in respect of the anatomical alignment and reduces the migration of the product.

It is bioactive due to the minerals it is made from. These, in turn, bind to the bone it is placed next to. It is also osteo stimulating.

The ability to osteo stimulate increases the vascularisation of the bone defect and the recruitment of osteoblasts to promote bone regeneration.

The release of silicium ions makes it possible to genetically stimulate the recruitment and proliferation of stem cells, and the differentiation and proliferation of osteoblasts in the defect with a view to full natural bone remodelling.

The intrinsic properties of bioactive glass give it the ability to promote the natural bone regeneration process by releasing mineral ions.
