Tactoset®: Injectable Bone Substitute

New Proprietary Hyaluronic Acid-Enhanced Formulation

Tactoset is a synthetic, biocompatible hyaluronic acid-based bone graft substitute material intended for filling bone voids or defects of the skeletal system that are not intrinsic to the stability of bony structure. The device provides an injectable, self-setting, osteoconductive bone graft substitute that hardens post-deployment to reinforce weaknesses such as those created by bone voids.

Tactoset is resorbed and replaced by the growth of new bone during the healing process.

Tactoset Therapy Advantages

Hyaluronic Acid-Enhanced Formulation

  • Highly flowable and easily injectable through minimally invasive surgery
  • Interdigitates into trabecular bone architecture to fill closed bone voids
  • Provides tactile feedback to confirm filling of the bone defect
  • Supports endogenous cell-mediated regeneration of new bone as material is resorbed

Closed Mixing System

  • Minimizes environmental exposure
  • Enhances ease of use: no mixing bowls; no mess

Unique Cannula Design

  • Allows surgeons to easily switch intraoperatively between side and end Tactoset delivery without having to remove and reinsert the outer cannula

Technology Overview

  • Synthetic injectable, self-setting osteoconductive biocompatible bone graft substitute material intended for permanent implantation
  • Hardens post deployment to reinforce weaknesses such as those created by bone marrow lesions
  • Converts to poorly crystalline hydroxyapatite at body temperature
  • Resorbs and is replaced by the growth of new bone during the healing process

Technical Information

  • Calcium phosphate remodels to hydroxyapatite, the mineral component of bone
  • The compressive strength of Tactoset is 8MPa, similar to that of cancellous bone
  • Tactoset has a 50% porosity, similar to that of trabecular & cancellous bone

Indications

Tactoset is available in the USA and is a FDA 510(k) cleared medical device indicated for filling bone voids or defects of the skeletal system (i.e. extremities and pelvis) that are not intrinsic to the stability of bony structure. These defects may be surgically created osseous defects or defects created from traumatic injury to the bone.
