Ultra High Porous HA/TCP
- Proven biocompatibility and osteoconductivity
- Osteoblastic activity is encouraged by osteoclastic resorption and phagocytosis, releasing calcium and phosphate ions locally
- For easy handling, ELIZ® granules can be mixed with blood, bone marrow or platelet concentrate to form a cohesive mixture
- ELIZ® will integrate with new bone completely within 12 – 14 weeks.
ELIZ® is gamma sterilized and available in several volumes and sizes.
ELIZ® is a sterile and reliable alternative for cancellous autograft or allograft. It is biocompatible and osteoconductive. The composition of ELIZ® (60% HA and 40% b-TCP) is similar to the mineral component of human bone and undergoes resorption at a controlled rate. Due to the similarity of the interconnected structure with human cancellous bone, ELIZ®provides an ideal environment for the ingrowth of new bone.
The porosity of ELIZ® is 83%. This ultra high porosity allows rapid bone ingrowth throughout the pores. ELIZ® will provide a scaffold for bone formation. Microporosity (1.0 – 10um) within the HA/TCP structure assists the transfer of essential nutrients.
