Apatos is a biomaterial of heterologous origin with characteristics similar to mineralized human bone; it can therefore be used as alternative to autologous bone.
Apatos must always be hydrated and thoroughly mixed with a few drops of sterile saline; it can also be mixed with patient’s blood. Finally it can be mixed if necessary with the drug selected for surgery; the mixture thus obtained should be positioned with a sterile spatula or syringe for biomaterials.
