Dynamic bioactive bone graft material and methods for handling

Image Number 13 for United States Patent #8567162.

The present disclosure relates to a dynamic bioactive bone graft material and a method of handling the material to prepare an implant. In one embodiment, a method of preparing a dynamic bioactive bone graft implant is provided. The method includes the step of providing a porous, fibrous composition of bioactive glass fibers, wherein the fibers are characterized by fiber diameters ranging from about 5 nanometers to about 100 micrometers, and wherein the porosity of the matrix ranges from about 100 nanometers to about 1 millimeter. The porous, fibrous composition is introduced into a mold tray, and a shaped implant is created using the mold tray. The composition may be wetted with a fluid such as saline or a naturally occurring body fluid like blood prior to creating the shaped implant. In another embodiment, the porous, fibrous composition is provided with the mold tray as a kit.
