Strip provides surgeons with increased flexibility for bone grafting in complex cases. Mastergraft Strip was cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration FDA earlier this year and has been clinically evaluated by surgeons for a variety of bone grafting procedures with outstanding intraoperative performance. Mastergraft strip provides surgeons with a bone grafting option that offers a continuous latticework for longer grafting procedures at the back of the spine, which are often performed when the spine loses stability or its natural shape. The product comes in unique lengths that eliminate the need to utilise multiple units of a synthetic product for a long fusion. The combination of these handling characteristics and the features common to all Mastergraft products provide surgeons with a synthetic graft that has all the necessary qualities of a scaffold for multi-level posterolateral fusion procedures.

Medtronic Introduces Mastergraft strip for spinal surgery

Randomized, controlled study in a laboratory setting. The rabbit posterolateral fusion model is an established environment for testing of fusion concepts. It offers the opportunity to obtain radiographic, histological, and biomechanical data on novel fusion materials. Thirty six rabbits were entered into the study with 34 used for analysis. Bilateral posterolateral lumbar intertransverse fusions were performed at L5-L6. Animals were humanely euthanized at 8 weeks post surgery.

Mastergraft products facilitate the delivery of the patient's own cells while maintaining their viability. The biphasic chemistry and macro- and microporous structure is specifically engineered to balance new bone formation while remodeling into the patient's own bone. Mastergraft Granules are indicated only for bony voids or gaps that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure.
