Bone Grafting

In cases when bone grafts from the hip (iliac crest harvests) are necessary, MacroPore® mesh can be used to maintain the relative position of bone graft in the hip.

Specific bioresorbable implants serve as a protective covering for iliac crest (hip bone) reconstruction after a bone graft procedure.

3. MacroPore mesh covers the site and allows the bone to heal in a protected environment.
