Abstract

This study evaluated first results of biphasic phosphate (BCP) ceramic granules with hydroxyapatite (HAp)/ β-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) ratio of 90/10 as bone substitute for reconstruction of the bone defects in orthopedic surgery, such as fracture and fracture non union treatment, primary and revision arthroplasty and chronic osteomyelitis. We evaluated twelve clinical cases of patients who had undergone surgeries with BCP implantation. Follow up period range from 2 to 8 months, on average 4.5 months. The classification of results was based on clinical and radiographic assessments. The size of defects ranged from 32 cm to 1 cm, average 6.42 cm, median 3 cm. The best results were obtained from patients after elective orthopedic procedures and patients with bone defects less than 3 cm.
