• Composite
  • A bone substitute is impregnated in the hardened and stiffened fiber material forming an artificial bone composite. (google.ca)
  • Vascular channels are formed in the artificial bone composite to facilitate in-growth of vessels and bone forming cells. (google.ca)
  • The construction and methods achieve an artificial composite structure that is similar to natural bone with comparable properties. (google.ca)
  • vascular channels formed in the artificial bone composite prior to installation to facilitate in-growth of vessels and bone forming cells. (google.ca)
  • 4. A biologic artificial bone according to claim 1 , wherein the artificial bone composite is wrapped with a porous sheet of absorbable material having dissolvable spikes of variable density on one side thereof, the porous sheet being wrapped on the artificial bone composite with the spikes facing inward to penetrate the artificial bone composite, thereby creating the vascular channels for vascular in-growth after implantation of the biologic artificial bone. (google.ca)
  • 5. A biologic artificial bone according to claim 1 , further comprising a single or multiple stumps of the artificial fiber material in continuity with the artificial bone composite for attachment of tendons after implantation of the biologic artificial bone. (google.ca)
  • thereby
  • The goal is to form a non-brittle, bone replacement moulded body having a positive fit, i.e. having a shape which is anatomic and/or corresponds to the defect, which perfectly fills the bone defect and can be resorbed thereby. (google.co.uk)
