Bone Morphogenetic Protein
The Bone Morphogenic Protein (BMP- isolated protein) is responsible for inducing cells that form new cartilages and bones in our body. During the surgery, this protein is soaked and bound with a collagen sponge. Then the sponge is designed in a way so that it disappears with time. And as it dissolves and disappears, the BMP stimulates the cartilage cells to form new bones. Once it has catalyzed the formation of new bone, it goes away.
Recipients are spared the donor site pain as there is no need for bone harvest for BMP from the patient’s hip. The BMP also help eliminate complications that may arise from the site of the graft harvest.
