Precision Fusion

The osteoSPAN advanced bone graft product is available in a block form (in addition to granules) that was specifically designed for posterolateral spine fusion. The osteoSPAN Fusion Kit is based on the same TrelCor technology as the osteoSPAN Granules. The Fusion Kit consists of two TrelCor blocks packaged together. The osteoSPAN Fusion Kit is intended to be mixed with autograft for use as a bone graft extender in the posterolateral spine. The block form of osteoSPAN is favored by surgeons during posterolateral fusion for its ease of use, resistance to compression, super-fast fluid wicking, and easy combination with local bone autograft. osteoSPAN Fusion Kits are available in sizes 6 x 9 x 40mm and 6 x 6 x 40mm (block size).

Unlike other porous ceramic materials, osteoSPAN provides the surgeon an advanced bone graft that is actively involved in the bone healing process

Nanocrystalline Surface

  • Nanocrystalline structure provides an optimal surface for cell attachment
  • Nanocrystalline ceramics have been shown to improve cell proliferation, and promote cell differentiation and function1

Composition Similar to Bone Mineral

  • Hydroxycarbanoapatite (HCA) closely mimics the natural composition of human bone mineral
  • HCA materials have been shown to enhance the osteoconductive response2

Biomimetic Porous Architecture

  • 100% interconnected pore structure and pore size allows bone formation throughout the entire implant
  • Pore architecture similar to cancellous bone results in an optimal combination of strength and porosity, and a structure that is resistant to crushing during implantation

Our osteoSPAN Fusion Kits provide
a scaffold with continuous
interconnected porosity specifically designed to
bridge the transverse process in
posterolateral spine surgeries.
