, /PRNewswire/ -- BONESUPPORT™, an emerging leader in injectable bone substitutes for orthopedic trauma, bone infections and instrument augmentation related to orthopedic surgery, today announced data from the first U.S. study of CERAMENT™ with Gentamicin in an infected rat model as presented by the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) at the recent European Bone & Joint Infection Society (EBJIS). The study was a comparative evaluation to determine improvement of new bone growth and decrease in infection rate after debridement in a rat osteomyelitis model with use of CERAMENT™|G as compared with CERAMENT™|BONE VOID FILLER without antibiotics and compared to no void filler. The study showed no evidence of infection and greater new bone growth at six months when treated with CERAMENT™|G, compared to the other two control groups.
BONESUPPORT™ is an emerging leader of injectable bone graft substitutes for orthopedics, and trauma focusing on bone infection, instrument augmentation and spinal applications. CERAMENT™ is an injectable, synthetic bone substitute that mimics the properties of cancellous bone, allows for controlled resorption to support future bone ingrowth and is injectable under local anesthesia for minimally invasive surgery. CERAMENT™|G and CERAMENT™|V are the first CE-marked injectable antibiotic eluting ceramic bone graft substitutes indicated to promote and protect bone healing in the management of osteomyelitis, (bone infections). CERAMENT's unique biologic properties deliver a consistent, pre-packed and ready-to-use formulation to facilitate optimal delivery. CERAMENT™|G and CERAMENT™|V are not available in .
