The proposed solution is the development of a biocompatible, biodegradable and biologically active material, with a very specific shape and a microporous surface. Thanks to its osteoconductive properties, this graft biomaterial, in addition to filling bone defects, will allow cell development inside and between the particles.
This proposal is also aimed at solving large bone defects, where the filling is not a safe alternative since the neovascularization of the walls of the bone defect does not easily reach the center of the cavity, leaving the particles unintegrated, which are then encapsulated with the foreign body reaction.
Given its particular geodesic shape, the particles of this biomaterial show imbrication and interlocking between them, forming units that can protrude one or two millimeters in height, offering the possibility of increasing the bone volume in height of the grafted area.
Not least, these more predictable results are becoming more cost-competitive than current solutions.
