Reconstruction with SmartBone Microchips after bone loss due to fracture

The bone defect was studied and granulated SB were mixed with patient blood and tailor-made to obtain the desired shape once in situ.* SB was successfully grafted and covered with a commercial resorbable collage membrane.*

Good osteointegration together with new bone formation were already visible 4 months later. The new bone allowed fixing screw for dental implant and the radiography after 8 months showed their good placement and alignment with the patient’s teeth.*

Follow-up after 2 years proved concrete evidence of good bone formation.*
