Atlantik

Bone substitute made of biomaterials

Atlantik synthetic bone substitute is manufactured in accordance with a system of quality assurance and has EC marking.

These bone substitutes consist of 70 % hydroxyapatite and 30 % ß tricalcium phosphate. The composition of the materials complies with the prevailing.

They are design to fill in bone cavities, specially in the following applications:

• Joint prosthesis surgery

• Vertebral surgery

• Traumatology on closed fracture

• Osteotomy

• Filing after tumour resection

• Maxillofacial

• Dental

Atlantik bone substitutes are semiresorbable due to their tricalcium phosphate phase, thereby allowing for the partial replacement of the bone substitute by natural bone that will reinforce the long-term mechanical properties of the bone substitute.

Its synthetic origin prevents the risks associated with transmission of pathogens, therefore guarantees a total safety.

Atlantik bone substitute is available in 2 shapes:

-Granules:0.5, 1, 2 or 4 mm micro and macro-porous granules

-Blocks: Parallelepipeds, cylinders or corners with micro and macro-porosity (macropores: 500 µm). The compressive strength is around 10 MPa and the porosity ratio is 70%.

Characteristics

Atlantik bone substitutes have an optimised porosity and surface to induce fast bone ingrowth and good osteointegration.

Atlantik's structure combines two different porosities. Macropores to induce the cell penetration and Micropores to increase the area in contact with the biological fluids.

The mechanical characteristics of the implants make them appropriate for most clinical indications

In vitro tests, animal implantation and clinical results show a perfect osteointegration of Atlantik Bone Substitutes.

 

Picture A: Implantation in rabbit (3 months - Ulna)

100 μm histological section observed in microradiography.

White: biomaterial

Grey: mineralised bone tissue

Black: non mineralised substances

The mineralisation of bone tissue penetrating inside the porosities is equivalent to the mineralisation of the bone tissue surrounding the implant.

     

Picture B: Implantation in rabbit (3 months - Ulna)

50 μm histological section coloured with May-Grünwald-Giemsa

Black: biomaterial

Beige: mineralised bone tissue

Blue: non mineralised cells and tissue

Penetration of mineralised tissue inside the porosities of the biomaterial and beginning of the biodegradation of the biomaterial.
