This is the pieces of bone which are used for surgical fusion. Bone can be removed from one part of the body to be used in another area. Bone graft can come from a donor. Artificial bone graft can be manufactured.
there are two kinds of bone grafts. Autograft bone is bone that is harvested from one place in a person and then transplanted to another location in the same person. Allograft bone is bone donated from one person and harvested, processed, stored and then transplanted to another person.
is surgery to place new bone into spaces between or around fractures (broken bone) or defects (holes) in bone. New bone to be grafted around fractures or defects can be autografts (taken from the patient's own healthy bone) or allografts (from frozen, donated bone).
This procedure is done when there has been significant bone loss because it helps the body to regenerate lost bone. The source of the grafting material can either be from the patientâ€(tm)s own body or from a natural substance such as algae. Over time your own newly formed bone will replace much of the grafted material, however follow up work such as an implant will have to be done within a matter of months or the body will start to re-absorb the new bone.
