- Wedges are designed for use in case of fractures (knee, shoulder).
CERAFORM® synthetic bone substitute is a biocompatible and safe synthetic biphasic ceramic made of hydroxyapatite (HA) and beta tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP). Hydroxyapatite Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2 is a calcium phosphate similar to the mineral phosphase of bone tissue. Tricalcium phosphate Ca3(PO4)2, more soluble than HA, improves the resorption kinetics of CERAFORM®.
