New scientific paper further confirms osteointegration of OssDsign Cranial PSI implants

05 May 2021 - 08:00

OssDsign AB (publ) (“OssDsign” or the “Company”) today announced that independent researchers from Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden, have published a scientific paper in Journal of Neurosurgery describing bone integration in patients implanted with OssDsign Cranial PSI. Samples from four studied patients consistently show vascularized bone, integrating the OssDsign implant with surrounding native bone. This reaffirms the positive findings presented in previously published papers and further strengthens the benefits of OssDsign’s custom-made calcium phosphate implants.

Patients undergoing cranioplasty – the surgical repair of a bone defect in the skull – often suffer from complications. Reported rates of implant failure ranges from 10 to 30 percent and the risk of developing surgical site infections is high. Innovative implants, like OssDsign Cranial PSI, can decrease the risk for implant failure by improving osteointegration, thereby reducing the risk of foreign body reaction.

The research group at Uppsala University Hospital observed bone and blood vessel formation in the implants in all four studied patients. The integration occurred as effectively in the central parts of the implant as in the bone-adjacent parts. In one of the cases the full implant was removed due to a recurrent tumor, but in the three other cases the implants remain in place without signs of implant failure after 33, 36 and 50 months, respectively.

The researchers conclude that early and sustained osteointegration of OssDsign implants in cranioplasty occurs and should confer benefits for patients in need of the procedure.

“We are very encouraged by the case series from this independent clinical research group as they once again confirm bone and blood vessel formation integrating OssDsign’s implants with the surrounding bone. The ability of the implants to allow for regeneration of bone is a likely contributor to the low observed rate of complications showed in our recently presented updated outcome data from more than 1,000 cranioplasty procedures.” says Morten Henneveld, CEO of OssDsign.
