USE OF EQUINE BONE SUBSTITUTES IN CALCANEAL FRACTURES

2018
Author : Bioteck Scientific Department

Equine bone substitutes produce results comparable to homologous bone substitutes.

The sheet summarizes the result of a retrospective clinical trial concerning calcaneal fractures, published in 2017 in The Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery, concerning patients who were treated either with chips or blocks derived from cancellous tissue (Osteoplant, Bioteck) or with a homologous graft. Retrospective analysis showed that the distribution and presence of complications, expected in this type of surgery, did not vary significantly between the two groups. At the last follow-up, the patients had overlapping functional scores. The authors conclude that the equine bone substitute appears to be a valid alternative to the use of homologous bone tissue.
