► BoneCure® promotes guided bone regeneration (GBR) and new bone growth.
► BoneCure® is a safe and effective solution for fracture management.
► BoneCure® tremendously reduces healing time and complication rate.
► No modification to current surgical procedure required.
► Easy to use; can be shaped to any geometry; suture-able; drill-able.

► Graft containment
Contraindications and Precautions for the use of BoneCure®:
►Infection is a contra-indication for BoneCure as stated expressively also in the Instructions for Use.
Do not used BoneCure in cases of infection since the membrane will actually close in the infected area and augment its deleterious effects. The end result will be an infected foreign body which will have to be removed completely and a delayed or non-union of the fracture, unless totally cleared from infection and using an autologous bone graft.
In order to preventpost-operative infection of the surgical wound and the membrane, the veterinarian and owner should prevent external contamination from the dog's saliva (licking the wound), urine, feces or external dirt. This necessitates the maintenance of absolute hygiene and keep bandages dry and clean with frequent changes. Avoid such risks of infection during the first three weeks until the skin incision has healed completely.
In addition do not use BoneCure also in the following cases:
► History of malignancy, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy for malignancy
► Active autoimmune disease
► Any past or present immunosuppressive treatment
► Not indicated for use in load-bearing and unstable indications unless used in conjunction with appropriate fixation systems
