Abstract

The evaluation of Orthogem, a calcium phosphate synthetic bone graft with a novel porous structure, in comparison with Vitoss, a commercially available implant material, was discussed. The Orthogem implants were completely invested with new bone and bone ingrowth was intimately associated with the intact surfaces of the pores. It was observed that peripheral bone attachment was significantly greater in the Orthogen-TCP and Orthogem-HA implants compared to Vitoss. Analysis shows that the Orthogem achieves comparable total bone formation to Vitoss and a significantly lower soft tissues to bone ratio.
