A-Grix-TE Bone Graft Substitute by Ascend Surgical is a synthetic biomaterial. Combining the bone forming capabilities of our crystallized calcium sulfate Hemihydrate with calcium phosphate has resulted in a composite graft that is delivering where other bone void fillers fall short.
Approximately 40MP a initial compressive strength (at 2 hours, wet conditions)
50% slower than pure calcium sulfate products (excluding crystallized calcium sulfate hemihydrate)
Composite Formulary Makeup
- Primary osteoconductive filler
- Resorbs first primarily through simple dissolution to allow early vascular infiltration
25% CaPO ₄ (brushite & granular TCP)
- Osteoclastic Resorption
- Secondary porous scaffold that is resorbed after primary filler
- TCP granules are resorbed in the third and final phase.
