Calcium sulfate bone grafts - 120 Years of Research

  1. 1. Calcium sulfate 120 years of researchDr. Amir KraitzerPh.D, MBA
  2. 2. “Simplicity is not an objective in art,but one achieves simplicity despite onesself by entering into the real senseof things”Constantine Brancusi Brancusi - The Newborn in the Museum of Modern Art, New York
  3. 3. Agenda
  4. 4. History of Calcium sulfate Bassanite9,000 year old traces in Mesopotamia5,000 year old remnants in ancientEgyptian pyramids1700‘s–Henry the 8th, king of France,orders covering all wooden walls withplaster
  5. 5. Calcium sulfate ApplicationsConstructionsArtAgricultureFood and BeverageCosmetics 19th century plasterwork from House of Borujerdies in Kashan, Iran
  6. 6. Calcium sulfate in Medicine  Pharmaceuticals  Medical devices  External Plaster casts  Internal (Orthopedics, Dental, Spine, Osteoporosis, tumor, trauma)Upper Right Mirzayan et al. 2001Arm (61F) Implantation At 3 months At 5 months

  8. 8. Bone Healing Mechanisms Bone is the only tissue capable of regenerating itself completely The degree of regeneration depends on the mechanism of bone healingRepair RegenerationFormation of a regeneration is Bone new tissue the preferred of tissue having Formation mechanismdifferent than original complete in terms of bone bone similar structure andto healing leading higher volume of new formed bone of original bone composition Composition: Composition: Graft High amount of New Voids Formed Bone Fibrotic tissue Blood vessels Low amount of New Formed Bone
  9. 9. Agenda
  10. 10. Bone graft requirements(1) Osteoconductive  Mechanical support for cell migration and differentiation  Interconnected porous system to allow cell and protein infiltration(2) Bioresorbable(2) Osteoinductive  Resorbs completely in the rate of new bone formation  Contain GF offering stimulation towards osteoblastic differentiation(3) Bioactive and encourage migration of osteoprogenitor cells Biologically recruit(3) Osteogenic the cycle required for new bone formation Chemically activates  Contains living cells within the graft to form new bone
  11. 11. Bioactive properties Platelets are a natural source of growth factors Platelet infiltration is allowed by the microporosity of the graft during wound healing A Bioactive graft would activate the platelets Activated platelets release GF such as PDGF, and BMPs These GFs stimulate bone formation and angiogenesis
  12. 12. Temporary Scaffolding PropertiesVolume Graft resorption Week 12 Woven Bone Lamellar Bone Partial volume Pores (400 m) allow cell migration and angiogenesis First 4 weeks Entire volume Pores (100 m) allow growth Bone Growth factors infiltration Week 20 further Complete graft resorption 4 16 Time (weeks)
  13. 13. Slow Graft resorptionVolume Graft resorption Bone Growth50% Mechanically interferes bone formation Reduce GF and cell infiltration 4 16 Time (weeks)
  14. 14. Fast Graft resorptionVolume Graft resorption50% Reduce graft stability and Bone Growth amount of new bone formed Particle migration increase inflammation 4 16 Time (weeks)
  15. 15. Ideal synthetic graft Totally replaced by natural bone Scaffolding properties • Resorb in a rate equivalent to bone growth • Micro and macro structure for GF infiltration and cell migration Bioactive properties

  20. 20. CS Resorption mechanism CS dissolves by surface erosion forming hydroxyapatite bone like structure HA HA CS CS CS time Three dissolution mechanisms:  Dissolution by hydrolysis  Enzymatic lysis by low pH  Osteoclasts and osteoblasts
  21. 21. CS Resorption mechanism 100μm Bar CS cement implanted in a rabbit 2 weeks post implantation Apatite precipitate Rings of precipitated apatite are formed in morphology and composition similar to bone
  22. 22. CS Biological Properties Both material and its degradation products are biocompatible Cells are able to migrate over CS Prevents soft tissue in-growth Human osteoblast over CS in late stage of mitosisIncrease rates of vital bone growth
