Vitoss BA

Bioactive Bone Graft Substitute

A synthetic bone graft with bioactive glass that has a unique porosity, structure, and chemistry to help drive 3D regeneration of bone

Vitoss BA Bioactive Bone Graft Substitute

Literature has shown that bioactive glass exhibits good bonding-to-bone properties in animal models.1-3 Upon implantation, the ionic constituents (Silicon, Sodium, and Calcium) of bioactive glass are released into the surrounding environment and react with bodily fluids.4-7 This reaction produces the deposition of a thin layer of physiologic calcium phosphate at its surface, favorable for osteoblast attachment.8 This is commonly referred to as a bioactive effect, and may lead to the bonding of new bone to the scaffold.1-3,6,9-11 Vitoss BA is a highly porous calcium-phosphate (up to 90% porous)12 containing bioactive glass that is stable at physiological pH13 and resorbs during the natural remodeling process of bone.14

  • The addition of bioactive glass helps create a surface favorable for osteoblast attachment1-3,6,9-11

  • Vitoss BA Foam Pack is stable in a fluid environment, can soak and hold bone marrow, and is moldable

  • Vitoss BA Foam Strip is flexible when wet, can soak and hold bone marrow, and is compression resistant and easy to cut

Note: In-vitro bioactivity testing has not been evaluated in human clinical trials.
