maxgraft® cortico

BONE AUGMENTATION WITH THE SHELL TECHNIQUE

maxgraft® cortico is a prefabricated cortical bone plate from human donor bone. The concept of the shell technique is the preparation of a biological container which creates the necessary space for the full incorporation of the particulated bone graft material. maxgraft® cortico can be used as a substitute for autologous bone and therefore eliminates a second surgical site to harvest bone.

 

SPECIFICATIONS & FACTS

RECONSTRUCTION OF BONE WITHOUT MORBIDITY THROUGH SECOND SURGICAL PROCEDURE

 

Usually a micro saw is used to harvest a bone block that is later split into two to three thin bone plates. These bone plates can further be reduced in thickness with a safescraper or a bone mill. The complete harvesting process is time consuming and often it is more painful for the patient than the augmentation itself and also a possible source of complications. maxgraft®cortico was developed to circumvent donor site morbidity and to prevent the time-consuming harvesting and splitting of autologous bone blocks.
