CERACELL® ORTHO: silicon-doped β-TCP

Bone regeneration with reliability and reproducibility

CERACELL ORTHO is silicon-doped β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP). This purely synthetic, fully resorbable bioceramic offers excellent material properties. It offers excellent patient compatibility and ideal conditions for a positive healing process and complete bone regeneration.

With its various application forms, CERACELL ORTHO is not only a suitable solution for the many different requirements in spinal surgery, it also offers excellent handling features for surgeons.

CERACELL ORTHO is "Made in Germany“. A patented manufacturing process and special production processes in state-of-the-art cleanrooms guarantee high phase purity and consistent quality.

Many different fields of application in spinal surgery

  • Easy procedure for filling ROCCIA® cages and for dorsolateral deposition for bone fusion with CERACELL ORTHO in combination with the posterior fixation system VERTICALE®
  • Complete resorption of CERACELL ORTHO
  • Use of autologous cancellous bone also possible
  • No additional surgery of the iliac crest required
  • Suitable substrate for biological materials

CERACELL ORTHO Granules

  • Filling, bridging, reconstruction of bone defects 
  • Plastic reconstruction of damaged or resected bone regions
  • Osteosynthesis, e.g intersegmental deposition for spinal fusion
  • Revision surgery
  • Increased osteoconductivity due to a large surface area with a high degree of roughness
  • Active, continuous cell supply thanks to special open multi-porosity
  • Reduced resorption time because the texture encourages rapid ossification with autologous bone
  • Easy mixing of CERACELL ORTHO mouldable foam with autologous blood or bone marrow aspirate * at a maximum ratio of 1 : 1
  • Brief, careful kneading of the biological material components until the required texture has been reached, and direct application of CERACELL ORTHO mouldable foam to the implant or defect

CERACELL ORTHO Mouldable Foam

  • Filling, bridging, reconstruction of bone defects
  • Plastic reconstruction of damaged bone regions
  • Osteosynthesis, e.g intersegmental deposition for spinal fusion
  • Easy handling due to defect-oriented modelling and comfortable positioning
  • Easy mixing of CERACELL ORTHO mouldable foam with autologous blood or bone marrow aspirate * at a maximum ratio of 1 : 1
  • Brief, careful kneading of the biological material components until the required texture has been reached, and direct application of CERACELL ORTHO mouldable foam to the implant or defect

CERACELL ORTHO Flexible Foam Strip

  • Osteosynthesis, e.g. dorsolateral spinal fusion

  • Inside the defect the elastic material makes direct contact with vital bone

  • Where necessary, CERACELL ORTHO flexible foam can be cut to the required size before mixing
  • Easy mixing of CERACELL ORTHO flexible foam with autologous blood or bone marrow aspirate * at a maximum ratio of 1 : 1
  • Brief, careful kneading of the biological material components until the temporary, required texture has been reached, and direct application of CERACELL ORTHO flexible foam to the implant or defect. The elastic material spreads throughout the implant or defect so there is direct contact with adjacent bone material or the implant material.

* The optimum mixing ratio always depends on the consistency of the bone marrow aspirate.

Note: Both when using granules and foam, care must be taken to ensure that the biological materials have the correct mixing ratio in relation to one another and are not mixed for too long, so as not to compromise the solidity of the granules and of the foam.
