Bone Formation Triangle
Three key elements in bone formation include scaffold, cells and signals.
The Structure Necessary for Bone Growth
Bonus™ Synthetic Graft resorbable bone graft is used to fill bone voids and acts as an osteoconductive porous scaffold for recruited cells.
15cc of Bonus™ Synthetic Graft is provided in each convenience kit and can be hydrated with bone marrow aspirate obtained using the supplied bone marrow aspiration needle. Bonus™ Synthetic Graft has been shown effective as a graft substitute in metaphyseal defects, lumbar fusions, and cervical fusions.
The GPS® III System produces 6ml of platelet rich plasma from a 60ml input. The PRP will contain over 90% of the available platelets and 50% of the available white blood cells. This concentrated output can be combined with autograft or allograft bone.
Harvesting the Patient’s Own Cells
Bone marrow aspirate contains cells which can differentiate into bone. Aspiration of bone marrow allows the surgeon access to the patient’s own population of stem cells. Bone marrow aspirate can be used to hydrate Bonus™ Synthetic Graft.
