Wright Medical launches injectable bone graft worldwide:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Wright Medical has launched worldwide its Pro-dense injectable regenerative graft, a bone graft substitute. While the product received US FDA approval in February 2006, it was released in a controlled fashion to select institutions to confirm human effectiveness over a 17-month period, said the Arlington, Tennessee firm. "Extra time and resources were invested in order to generate strong clinical experience prior to our full-scale commercial release," said John Treace, VP of marketing for Wright's biologics division. Studies have shown that when bone voids are treated with Pro-dense, new bone tissue formed at a faster rate than with autograft - widely considered to be the gold standard, claimed the firm.
