Eclipse™... For balanced bone regeneration.
Using the mineral building blocks naturally found in human bone, Eclipse goes a step beyond the realm of everyday hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) with its unique combination of micro and macroporosity technology.
The Eclipse key to balanced bone regeneration is its unique ratio between micro and macro porosity and its unique ratio between HA and ß-TCP.
80% ß-TCP – calcium and phosphate ion release
20% HA – scaffold effect for osteoblastic activity
70% overall porosity
- 2/3 macroporosity
- 1/3 microporosity
Microporosity+macroporosity=Controlled Bioactivity=›Resorption & Substitution
Microporosity (pores <10µm) allows the diffusion of biological fluids, by the capillary action, into the three-dimensional matrix. Inside the fine pores of the matrix, biological fluids dissolve ß-TCP producing calcium phosphate ions that are released back into the biological fluids. This saturation of ions leads to precipitation of apatite crystal identical to that of the natural bone minerals. Shortly afterwards, this process creates a surface that promotes bone cell adhesion.
Macroporosity (300 to 600µm) promote a deep invasion of osteogenic cells by osteoconduction. Through the same resorption and formation cycle as the natural bone remodeling process, new bone increases progressively at the expense of the Eclipse.
From the manufacturers of ECLIPSE - biphasic calcium phosphate synthetic material in a polymer gel.
MBCP Gel is composed of rounded granules in hydrophilic polymer solution.
55% MBCP 80—200 µm granules
Granules are : 60% HA and 40 ß-TCP
45% HPMC Synthetic polymer (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose)
By combining the complete interconectivity of MBCP granules with a carrier, the handling properties are greatly enhanced.
