A fibre-shaped glass with qualities of biocompatibility and biodegradation could be promising for reconstructive bone surgery in orthopaedics and neurosurgery. New highly biocompatible glasses, originally made by the Italian Group of Study on Biocompatible Glass, are obtained both in cylinder and fibre shapes due to their original chemical composition (Glassfiber). This is the only glass which is also available as a continuous filament. Hydrolytic in vitro and in vivo tests demonstrate that these glasses present both good biocompatibility and adjustable biodegradation in relation to their chemical composition.

Abstract

A fibre-shaped glass with qualities of biocompatibility and biodegradation could be promising for reconstructive bone surgery in orthopaedics and neurosurgery. New highly biocompatible glasses, originally made by the Italian Group of Study on Biocompatible Glass, are obtained both in cylinder and fibre shapes due to their original chemical composition (Glassfiber). This is the only glass which is also available as a continuous filament. Hydrolytic in vitro and in vivo tests demonstrate that these glasses present both good biocompatibility and adjustable biodegradation in relation to their chemical composition. The advantages of bioactive glass also being available as a continuous filament are suggested.
