NANOGEL® bone substitute comes in the form of an apatite gel designed to replace bone with an osteoconductive material. NANOGEL® is a material designed to fill bone defects that are not intrinsic to bone stability. It is simple to place NANOGEL® percutaneously, enabling the surgeon to use it in closed site filling indications. NANOGEL® is gradually resorbed and replaced by bone during the remodelling process.

"Nanogel® is a hydroxylapatite nano particles gel aimed to fill bone defects. This product is ready-to-use. Nanogel® is packaged in a pre-filled sterile syringe. It is available in 0.5ml, 1ml, 2.5ml and 5ml. It is an injectable product for MIS (minimum invasive surgery)."

"In orthopaedics, when bone tissue is required, an autologous bone graft is the reference technique. When this is inadequate in terms of quality or quantity, synthetic bone replacements are used as an alternative to or in combination with the autograft. Their use can reduce or prevent morbidity risks associated with the harvest procedure of autologous bone often from iliac crest. Slightly crystallised hydroxyapatite and calcium phosphate (β-TCP) promote bone regrowth by providing in situ the raw material to reconstruct the natural bone. β-TCP and slightly crystallised hydroxyapatite nanoparticles are easily absorbed unlike strongly crystallised, pure hydroxyapatite"
