Abstract

The use of artificial bone grafts has been developed over recent years and is expected to increase further, for some indications even replacing the gold standard, autograft, in trauma and reconstructive surgery. However, the effectiveness of these materials is still a subject of debate, mostly because of unclear definitions or limited market surveillance. In this overview several facts and myths regarding bone-graft substitutes are summarized.
