OsseoConduct™ βTCP granules undergo a rapid rate of resorption due to its unique physical properties, providing space for ingrowth of mineralized bone. Other resorbable granular bone grafts require osteoclasts for resorption to take place. Osteoclasts exist only in mineralized bone. In order for other bone graft materials to be resorbed, they must be encased in mineralized bone first before absorption can occur. Therefore, the resorption process will take many months or years. OsseoConduct™ granules are able to be resorbed by monocytes (phagocytes) which are found in soft connective tissue.
