Comment Other bone reconstruction products (Score 5, Informative) 78

For those interested in the topic, linear high-density polyethylene like Medpor can be cut to size and allows tissue growth into the material once implanted. It is mostly for craniofacial reconstruction and generally not used in weight-bearing areas, though. There's also hydroxyapatite (nicknamed HA), derived from coral. Pretty cool stuff.
