Abstract

Background. Collagen-based synthetic bone grafts which contain tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and hydroxyapatite (HA), and collagen-based synthetic bone grafts containing only TCP have some advantages compared to autografts. Therefore, these grafts are frequently used to fill bone defects and pseudoarthrosis.
