  • Publication number: 20180000595
    Abstract: A bone repair composition and methods thereof include bone fibers made from cortical bone in which a plurality of bone fibers are made into various implant shapes conducive to introduction into a patient through minimally invasive surgery. The bone fiber compositions may be in the form of a pellet or cylinder. A method includes producing the bone fiber graft efficiently with control of key parameters of cohesiveness, rehydration and swelling of the bone fiber graft. Another method includes introducing the bone fiber graft into the cannula efficiently. A method is also provided to allow introduction of a bone graft into a patient by placing the implant in a tube and expelling it through the action of a plunger.

  • Patent number: 9642936
    Abstract: An osteoimplant includes at least partially demineralized cancellous bone as a substrate, which is impregnated with demineralized cortical bone matrix (DBM). The implant may include a binding agent to adhere the DBM to the cancellous bone substrate, and may also include a soft tissue barrier that covers a portion of the external surface of the implant. The cancellous bone substrate may be selectively demineralized, so as to provide regions with greater malleability, and other regions with greater structural properties.
