Ostofom is made from natural crystal hydroxyapatite & collagen fibers, which are having poor antigencity thus having wonderful tolerance.Ostofom is highly biocompatible being natural & specially treated to be devoid of reaction causing proteins & cells. Ostofom is porous particles to allow growth of oestoblast to remodel bone across the particles.Ostofom is resrobs completely in a span of 9-12 months. Ostofom is very east to handle since it is a charged particle and sticks to the place when soaked in physiological liquids.
PROPERTY & PHYSIOLOGICAL FUNCTION
Large percentage of inorganic component of bone is collagen while hydroxyapatite mimics crystalline structure of the bone salts. The acceleration of bone regeneration by inserting collagen with or without hydroxyapatite is experimentally & clinically demonstrated. Collagen accelerates haemostasis – clot formation – quick wound healing, presence of hydroxyapatite serves as scaffold initially for mineralization & stimulates cellular activity in the defect. Thus hydroxyapatite and collagen provide synergestic osteo-inductive & osteo-conductive properties for bone regeneration & remodeling.
