Use of «LitAr» Material for Substitution of Fingers and Forearm Bone Defects


Plastic hydroxyapatite collagenic material «LitAr» was used for the treatment of wrist and fingers bone defects in 23 patients. In 11 patients the defects resulted from degenerative dystrophic lesions and benign tumors, in 12 patients - posttraumatic genesis. Biotransformation of plastic material was controlled by X-ray and objective assessment was performed using computer analysis of X-ray films a posteriori. It was detected that lysis of composite «LitAr» took place within twenty days followed by substitution bone defect with newly formed bone structures. Newly formed bone met functional requirements of wrist and fingers.
