Paper Title:
Biological Behaviour of Bonelike® Graft Implanted in the Tibia of Humans
  Abstract

This paper reports the ability of Bonelike® to regenerate bone defected areas when implanted in the tibia of 3 patients (average age of 59 years) during a high tibial osteotomy (HTO) to treat medial compartment osteoarthritis of the knee. Bonelike® is a synthetic bone graft designed to mimic the inorganic composition of bone using a patent process that consists of liquid sintering hydroxyapatite in the presence of CaO-P2O5 based glass. The preliminary clinical evaluation performed showed that an intimate contact between new formed bone and Bonelike® was established (67±10 %), with no fibrous interface. Therefore, Bonelike® is a single-handedly viable osteoconductive synthetic grafting material as it has been demonstrated from the profiles of radiological, histological and scanning electron microscopy analyses for the six months implantation period.
