Bioventus launches Osteomatrix+ bone graft

Bioventus announced today that it has started selling Osteomatrix+ – a moldable bone graft substitute intended for a variety of orthopedic and spine bone remodeling applications. Bioventus officials boast that Osteomatrix+ has improved moldability, flexibility and versatility versus its predecessor. “Osteomatrix+ represents the first of several next-generation products that will be added to the Bioventus portfolio in the next five years,” Bioventus CEO Tony Bihl said in a news release.

However, brain death and myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury during transplantation may lead to cardiac dysfunction and hemodynamic instability. A previous work demonstrated that pre-treatm...

In this study, the widely used biomaterial titanium was functionalized with BMAP27(1-18), an α-helical cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide that retains potent staphylocidal activity when immobilized on agarose beads. A derivative bearing a short spacer with a free thiol at the N-terminus was coupled to silanized titanium disks via thiol-maleimide chemistry. Tethering was successful, as assessed by Contact angle, Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring (QCM-D), and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), with an average surface mass density of 456 ng/cm2 and a layer thickness of 3 nm. The ...

In this study, AT1-AAs were detected in the sera of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the positive rate was 44.44% vs. 17.46% in non-PAD volunteers. In addition, analysis showed that AT1-AAs level was positively correlated with PAD. To reveal the causal relationship between AT1-AAs and vascular aging, an AT1-AAs-positive rat model was established by active immunization. The carotid pulse wave velocity was higher, and the aortic endothelium-dependent vasodilatation was attenuated significantly in the immunized rats. Morphological staining showed thickening of the aortic wall. Histological examination showe...

Surgical strategies for scaphoid nonunions become more complex based on time from injury to treatment. The decision-making process can follow a logical sequence. Scaphoid nonunions less than 1  year after trauma and no carpal malalignment can be treated with percutaneous screw fixation under fluoroscopic and/or arthroscopic guidance. Reinterventions or patients with avascular proximal poles that do not need substantial grafts are reliably treated with pedicle vascularized bone grafts. Re section of the distal pole of the scaphoid is a good option in old injuries or after a failed scaphoid procedure. When there is radi...

AbstractPurposeBone tunnel widening following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is well documented, although the aetiology and clinical significance of this phenomenon remain unclear. At mid-term follow-up, a greater prevalence of tunnel enlargement has been reported with the use of hamstring (HS) grafts. However, there are paucity of data on what happens in the longer term. The aim of this study was to assess the change in femoral and tibial tunnel dimensions 15  years after four-strand HS ACLR.MethodsThis is a retrospective review of 15 patients who underwent arthroscopic ACLR using HS autograft tendo...

Authors: Xiao W, Hu C, Chu C, Man Y Abstract This prospective pilot study presents a novel method using the dentin shell technique for the three-dimensional reconstruction of alveolar bone defects. Autogenous dentin shell (≤ 2 mm) harvested from impacted third molars was fixed at the recipient site as an external barrier. The space between the dentin shell and residual bone was filled with deproteinized bovine bone mineral particles mixed with concentrated growth factor (CGF) pieces. Autogenous bone (gold standard for bone graft) was applied to prepare shell grafts as the control. A total of 13 patients were inc...

This study aimed to compare the bone regeneration capacities of MinerOss X, Bio-Oss, and autograft in rabbit calvaria. In this animal study, four defects measuring 8 mm in diameter were created in the calvaria of 10 rabbits using a trephine bur. Three defects were randomly filled with MinerOss X, Bio-Oss, and autogenous bone. The fourth defect remained empty as a control. The rabbits were sacrificed after 4 or 8 weeks. Calvarial samples were taken and histopathologically evaluated. The mean number of osteoblasts and the amount of newly formed bone in all groups were higher at 8 compared to 4 weeks. At 4 and 8 weeks, the am...

Authors: Adawi H, Hengjeerajaras P, Froum SJ, Bagheri Z Abstract The purpose of this article is to compare the larger (8 × 10-mm single implant and 15 × 20-mm multiple implant) lateral window designs used in the sinus elevation procedure with a newly proposed, less-invasive window design and discuss the advantages and limitations of the new design. The less-invasive window designs differ from the larger window designs in both the size and shape of lateral windows. Following creation of a round-window osteotomy, the quality of the sinus membrane and its ability to be elevated are assessed. The initial wi...
