In the world of moldable, synthetic bone graft substitutes, not all products are the same. There are many options to choose from where architecture, chemistry, and handling characteristics can all vary depending on what materials are used and the method of manufacturing. Two key characteristics are handling, both prior to and during insertion, and initial resistance to breakdown. The ability to shape, mold and mix while maintaining the product’s integrity is important to allow for effective placement in the surgical site. It is also important for the moldable carrier component to be absorbed quickly after placement to allow the underlying bone graft material to begin the remodeling process. Morpheus was engineered to optimize these characteristics by providing a product that imitates human cancellous bone both in its chemistry and architecture. When combined with an organic carrier, it provides unmatched handling, and is absorbed in 1-2 days to allow the granules to begin the remodeling phase.
