Functional description

GranOS granules (constructed of ?-tri-calcium phosphate) create a porous, resorbable osteoconductive

scaffold, that facilitates new bone growth upon which new bone deposits and matures. Interconnected

pores within the granules, support revascularisation and cellular invasion as the regenerating bone is

guided throughout the defect. Bone forming cells are infused, enhancing the processes of new bone

development and the eventual resorption of the scaffold, as the healing process progresses.

Intended purpose

GranOS is intended to be used as a synthetic bone void filler. It is only indicated for filling and/or

augmenting bony voids or gaps that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bone structure i.e. subjected to

either low load or compressive loading. If osseous defects are intrinsic to the stability and integrity of the

skeleton, mechanical stability must be addressed prior to use.
