KAINOS®+

Bioactive, biphasic bone graft substitute material

Ideal porosity – effective resorption

Results from numerous applications have revealed that biphasic ceramic materials can precipitate optimal bone regeneration. Containing beta-tricalcium phosphate (ß-TCP) and hydroxyapatite (HA) at a ratio of 40:60, KAINOS®+ is an effective matrix for osteogenetic cells due to its superior blend of microporous and macroporous particles (300 – 600 µm and <10 µm, respectively). The HA component means the osteoconductive matrix remains available to the cells sufficiently long for them to dock onto its “supportive structure”.

In parallel, the highly soluble TCP component provides an extremely favorable, physiological milieu by rapidly releasing calcium phosphate ions. The cells absorb the material, generating an equal volume of mineralized bone in its place. The newly formed bone is ultimately remodeled, as is the case with natural bone tissue. Remodeling generally takes 6 – 12 months to complete.
