Allomatrix Injectable Putty in Distal Radius Fractures
Allomatrix is a combination of Demineralized Bone Matrix with a binding medium of calcium sulfate hemihydrate and carboxymethylcellulose. Allomatrix combines the osteoinductive capacity of DBM with the osteoconduction and controlled resorption of surgical grade calcium sulfate.
Unstable fractures of the distal radius do not resist displacement once it has been manipulated into an anatomical position.
There is a parallel between the quality of the anatomic result and the residual capacity of the wrist, except in older, low demanding patients.
Injectable osteoconductive cements have been introduced to fill voids in metaphyseal bone and may provide a better stability around hardware in osteoporotic bone and help maintain reduction of fracture fragments.Moreover, a product like ALLOMATRIX could accelerate and improve bone healing and fracture stability by its osteoinductive properties. However, the clinical significance of these new bone graft materials still have to be proven in a randomised controlled study set-up.
