OsteoVy™ HA has an optimal pore structure for both percent porosity and pore size based on literature for bony ingrowth. The interconnected pores of the OsteoVy ™ HA promotes the colonization of the bone graft by blood vessels. The mechanical properties of OsteoVy ™ HA vary depending on the porosity and is adapted to its functionality. Its compressive strength is very close to trabecular bone (1 to 5 MPa).

OsteoVy™ HA uses Hydroxy Apatite material, already well used in clinical applications, with excellent biological properties that help bone cells of the patient to integrate the graft. Moreover, hydroxyapatite is an advanced biomimetic material well-known for its oesteoconductive and osseointegration properties.

The combination of the osteoconductive and osteointegration properties of OsteoVy™ HA with interconnected pores promotes the colonization of the bone graft by blood vessels.
This innovative combination is patented and helps free circulation of blood, tissue fluids and cells.
A pre-clinical study showed that the advanced porosity design of OsteoVy™ HA leads to 5 times faster osteointegration than conventional porosity designs.
