"Due to its composition and its structure, Phosphocalcic hydroxylapatite Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2 is a synthetic material which is the closest to bone tissue. NANOGEL® is a material to fill bone defects. NANOGEL® offers the surgeon wide possibilities of use : open or percutaneous surgery to fill closed bone defects."

"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"
