PROFESSOR LARS LIDGREN

OUR FOUNDER

The Company started as a research company in the early 2000s by Professor Lars Lidgren, with the vision of developing a synthetic product that could replace autograft and improve the quality of life for patients suffering from bone diseases.

    The randomized controlled trial CERTiFy ”Autologous Iliac Bone Graft Compared with Biphasic Hydroxyapatite and Calcium Sulfate Cement for the Treatment of Bone Defects in Tibial Plateau Fractures” is published by Hofman et al in Journal of Bone and; Joint Surgery (American). The study confirms that patient reported outcomes and bone remodeling for CERAMENT BONE VOID FILLER are as good as autograft, but with less post-operative pain and blood loss.

    The largest analysis of Health Economic Data for a bone substitute is presented at EBJIS. The analysis included 25000 patients and compared the clinical and financial results of Nuffield Orthopedic Hospital’s care model including antibiotic eluting CERAMENT with the care provided at other hospitals in England.

    Ferguson et al. publish the paper “Radiographic and Histological Analysis of a Synthetic Bone Graft Substitute Eluting Gentamicin in the Treatment of Chronic Osteomyelitis” in the Journal of Bone and Joint infection. The study includes clinical biopsies and histology confirming bone remodeling of CERAMENT G in patients.

    The distribution agreement with Zimmer Biomet ends in May.
