Abstract

A bone graft extender, BoneSave™/Allograft mix was mechanically and histologically analyzed. A 50:50 mix of allograft and BoneSave™ was compared with a control of pure allograft. The appropriate weights of BoneSlave™ and allograft were mixed and both graft types packed as 5 gram samples and irradiated. Bone remodeling in the graft was determined on the same specimens using histology. The results show that when used as a bone graft extender, BoneSave™ is able to maintain mechanical strength during remodeling, and this strength is similar to the surrounding cancellous bone.
