Norian® Drillable is a biocompatible1, fiber reinforced calcium phosphate bone void filler that is intended to be placed into bony voids or defects of the extremities and pelvis either before or after final fixation.
Features & Benefits
Drillable: Cleared to be drilled, tapped and have screws placed through it at any time during or after the setting process2
Reinforcing Fibers: Enhance structural integrity by improving handling, allowing for drillability and increasing the material’s resistance to cracking3
Flexibility of application: Material can be implanted either before or after final fixation
Compressive strength: Reaches a maximum compressive strength of (35MPa Inject, 25MPa FSP) within 24 hours, which is greater than that of cancellous bone4
Isothermic hardening: Eliminates thermal injury to surrounding soft tissue5, 6
Closely resembles the mineral phase of bone: Gradually resorbed and replaced with bone during the natural healing process7, 8
Osteoconductive: Provides scaffold to support bony in-growth4,
Norian Drillable is intended for bony voids or defects of the extremities and pelvis that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure. These defects may be surgically created osseous defects or osseous defects created from traumatic injury to the bone. The product provides a bone void filler that resorbs and is replaced with bone during the healing process. Norian Drillable can be used as an adjunct to conventional rigid hardware fixation by supporting the bone fragments during the surgical procedure.
