Abstract

A novel bone formation material based on hydroxyapatite-xerogel is presented. With the use of the innovative sol-gel technology this material is produced in the low-temperature range by the addition of silicon dioxide; in its structure it mimics to a great extent the natural bone matrix. This results in high osteoconductivity and an osteoprotective effect as well as in complete biodegradation corresponding to bone formation in the course of natural bone remodelling. Two case reports are presented.
