Mimicking the Architecture of Human Cancellous Bone
Zimmer Biomet’s OsseoTi Porous Metal Technology uses human CT data in combination with 3D printing technology to build a structure that is designed to mimic the architecture of human cancellous bone.
- Material strength between that of cancellous and cortical bone, which is designed to facilitate biologic fixation and loading of surrounding bone3*
- A porous architecture that has demonstrated excellent integration with host bone as early as 4 weeks in an animal study3*
OsseoTi Porous Metal Technology is made from the highly biocompatible Ti6AI4V alloy material that has corrosion resistance and a proven history of clinical success.1,2
Integration with host bone4 weeks
In an animal study3*
That is designe to mimic the structure of human cancellous bone
Average pore size475 microns
Designed to facilitate cell migration, vascularization and bone ingrowth3*
Designed to mimic the porous structure of human cancellous bone, the physical properties of OsseoTi Porous Metal are designed for the potential of bone integration.4 This porous metal structure which is designed to facilitate tissue ingrowth and remodeling, vascularization, and very close attachment between bone and the metal.
