Synthetic Bone Construct (SBC) – Custom-made Bone Construct
SBC is a custom-made bone construct to treat segmental bone defects or injuries either due to trauma or non-union cases or even diseased bones. Moreover, it is an osteoconductive and biodegradable synthetic bone construct from calcium phosphate-based materials (>50%). The main composition of SBC is the combination of Tri-calcium phosphate and Tetra-calcium phosphate materials; which are highly resorbable. SBC will be prepared in powder form and can be shaped into solids of various shapes and sizes via moulds.
It can form discs of different sizes and thickness to fill any segmental bone loss or defects and also can be made into pallets and blocks. SBC blocks normally have porous structures. Since SBC produced is custom-made, it means that for every case, a specific mould will be used to produce the bone construct. The sterilization for this product is using gamma irradiation.
