New Injectable Bone Substitute Using Reversible Thermosensitive Hydrogel and BCP Granules: In Vivo Rabbit Experiments

Abstract:

Article Preview

We have developed a new injectable bone substitute combining specific granules of BCP with or without radiopaque elements with a reversible thermo sensitive resorbable carrier such as Pluronic F-127. The composite is liquid at ambient temperature and set as hydrogel at 37°C. Rabbit experiment demonstrates high biocompatibility and bone ingrowth at the expense of the injectable bioceramic composite.
