Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM) Block and Strip are
unique bone graft substitutes composed of
100% fully demineralized cancellous bone with calcium
residual testing. Puros (DBM) Block and Strip
cancellous bone allografts are ideal natural scaffolds for new bone
growth because they are processed to preserve endogenous
growth factors including BMP 2, BMP 4 and BMP 7 which help support new
bone formation(1) and help retain their osteoinductive
Puros DBM Block and Strip are available in a variety of configurations to minimize the need for shaping during the surgical procedure, and is conveniently provided sterile with up to five year shelf life at room temperature.
