Osteoplug™ is a bioresorbable implant that is used for covering trephination burr holes in neurosurgery. Its interconnecting porous matrix architecture allows it to be rapidly saturated with marrow, blood and nutrients for bone growth and remodeling. Long-term clinical trials showed significant bone regeneration, re-covering the burr hole as the material is slowly resorbed by the body and replaced by autologous bone. It has superior mechanical strength and the scaffold architecture minimizes potential injuries to the exposed brain through the burr holes.
