This guide is used as a guideline for using Bongros granules and block as a chart of operating techniques. It is not intended to replace or change standard procedures for handling damage involving bone grafting and internal fixation.
Preoperative preparation: Radiographic monitoring of an area that has significant damage in order to accurately assess the extent of damage and to assist in the selection and placement of Bongros and internal fixation devices.
Caution on surgical procedures: Bongros does not have sufficient mechanical strength to support a function impairment of the damaged parts before soft & hard tissue ingrowth. Therefore, strong anatomical reduction and internal fixation, in all planes, must be carried out regardless of the use of Bongros using adequate internal fixation techniques until bone growth and healing of the damaged part occur. The site, size and geometry of the damage parts will determine the placement of Bongros by the surgeon.
Bongros granules can be used alone or mixed with premorselized autogenous or allogeneic bone graft. If using a mixture of bone graft/implant, Bongros granules can be mixed with a bonegraft after the bone has been crushed into small fragments.
