Anyone with Agili-C experience?
« on: January 03, 2017, 11:54:55 AM »
Hi all,

It does read like a promising implant, however has anyone got any direct experience with it at all?

Thanks in advance

Cross posting from my response on another thread:

I've been following this one closely. I'm not sure why the results are so good. It seems to be a run of the mill HA based implant. I'm guessing that this one may potentially have better results due to being more porous and integrating into the bone thus creating more vascular channels into the scaffold. The % of type II collagen in the studies looks promising over most of the other methods out there.
