New Bone Grafts and Substitutes Aim to be Effective Treatment Methods for Chronic Wounds
For decades together, bone grafts and substitutes have been consistently used for bone structure restoration, regeneration, and pain relief. Autografts were conventionally used for bone grafting, where a patient’s own bone was utilized as a graft. Autologous bone grafts are considered to be the gold standard for bone transplant. However, the use of autologous bone grafts contains the risk of transfer of infection. Thus, allografts were introduced in the global market to overcome the limitations of and the disadvantages linked with autologous grafts. Bone grafts and substitutes are primarily used in numerous application areas including foot and ankle, dental, joint replacement, spinal fusion, and craniomaxillofacial procedures.
As per the International Osteoporosis Foundation, the global incidence of fracture in men and women is expected to increase by 310% and 240% respectively by 2050. The growing incidence of fractures is expected to propel the global bone grafts & substitutes market in the years to come. The launch of new bone grafts and substitutes is expected to propel the global bone grafts and substitutes market.
Recently, Cerapedics, based in Colorado, developed FDA-approved bone grafts for the cervical spine, which the company believes has the capacity to improve spinal fusion procedures. The company has introduced the i-Factor bone graft that aims at improving the fusion level that is supposed to be achieved during spinal fusions in the cervical spine. i-Factor is the second FDA-approved bone graft on the market after Medtronic’s In Fuse, which is approved for improving the lumbar spine.
