Synergy Mini Vials 4 cc (8 x 0.5 cc doses) SD8X05CC
Synergy is an advanced biosynthetic bone graft comprised of
calcium phosphates that occur naturally in real bone. It is
a biphasic combination of β-Tricalcium Phosphate (β -TCP)
and Hydroxyapatite (HA).
Advanced Formulation - Biphasic Synergy is composed of
biocompatible β-TCP and HA1 sintered together. The ratio is
optimized for swift transformation into new bone throughout
85% resorbable β -TCP
15% structurally stable HA
Balanced Remodelling - Synergy works with the body in
2 integrated phases:
Phase 1: β-TCP simultaneously resorbs as new bone is
formed2, remodeling throughout the graft
Phase 2: HA microparticles slowly resorb, providing an
Cancellous-like, Osteoconductive Morphology - Synergy’s
structure is the architectural equivalent of cancellous bone.
Interconnected porous structure encourages stem
cell migration, proliferation and differentiation into
Provides for an adequate flow of nutrients to enhance
new bone formation3
These intelligent bioactive materials have the proven ability
to stimulate bone formation.3 The β -TCP quickly releases
calcium ions4 that cause clotting and release of plateletderived growth factors. This cascade of mineral release
and blood clotting provides the perfect environment for
stimulation of bone healing.
The cancellous-like porosity and surface structure encourage
inward cell migration. As the β -TCP resorbs more space
is created to support angiogenesis and bone formation1.
The micro particles of HA provide a more long lasting
Filling, bridging and/or reconstruction of non weightbearing bony defects.
