How is Bone used in Surgery?
Bone graft is a surgical procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and rebuild existing damaged or diseased bone.
Most of the skeleton consists of bone matrix which is the hard material that help bones retain strength. Inside the matrix are living bone cells and these make and maintain the matriculates which are the cells needed to help repair and heal when necessary.
When a bone is broken, the healing process begins and as long as the bone break is not too large, the bone cells will repair themselves independently. However, sometimes a fracture results in a large loss of bone and in this case the bone might not be able to fully heal without a bone graft.
During a bone graft procedure, the surgeon will insert a new piece of either donated or synthetic bone to the area where it needs healing, and the cells inside the new bone will attach themselves to the old bone. Over time that bone acts as a support, allowing it to produce new bone-forming cells which grow and repair the area.
Can Synthetic Bone be used in Bone Graft Surgery?
Synthetic bone graft is an artificially produced product which bulks up or extends the supply of available autograft bone (bone harvested from your own body). There are many extender biomaterials and tissues available, and their properties depend heavily on their origin and how they are processed.
Synthetic bone works in a similar way to human bone in bone graft surgery, it is like a scaffold that supports the bone-forming cells as they grow or repair bone over time. The surgeon will simply use the artificial bone during the bone graft surgery as opposed to bone from a human donation.
