April 25, 2008 – Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp. said its moldable putty configuration of Integra Mozaik Osteoconductive Scaffold is now available in a smaller configuration.
The addition of the smaller configuration aims to enable clinicians to use Integra Mozaik Osteoconductive Scaffold where smaller sizes are appropriate, such as cervical spine fusion and other non-spine orthopedic procedures.
Integra Mozaik Osteoconductive Scaffold is designed to bridge gaps or fill voids in the skeletal structures of the spine, extremities and pelvis and is available in two different configurations, a compression resistant strip and a moldable putty. It provides a framework for fusion by providing a compression resistance scaffold, as well as binding sites for cells and proteins; these elements are critical for the formation of new bone. When used with bone marrow aspirate from the patient, Integra Mozaik Osteoconductive Scaffold may replace the need to harvest bone from the patient’s iliac crest, reportedly sparing the patient additional surgery and postoperative pain.
