DePuy Synthes Spine, in collaboration with DePuy Synthes Biomaterials, announced the U.S. launch of CONFORM SHEET, a hydrated, pliable, and totally demineralized cancellous bone matrix that fills voids during posterolateral spinal fusion surgery and provides a natural scaffold for new bone formation. The new allograft implant, processed by the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF), has both osteoinductive and osteoconductive properties. Through a unique demineralization process, bone morphogenic proteins (BMPs) are exposed, providing CONFORM SHEET its osteoinductive properties, while the cancellous structure of the scaffold provides osteoconductive characteristics. CONFORM SHEET is wickable in that it readily absorbs various hydrating fluids including bone marrow aspirate, blood, or saline. When combined with bone marrow aspirate, CONFORM SHEET becomes osteogenic.
