BetaBASE MP is a bioresorbable Bone Replacement Material of pure β‑tricalcium phosphate with interconnecting porosity.
The calcium/phosphor atom ratio is 1.5 which is very similar to the mineral phase of the human natural bone of 1.6. The bioresorption, i.e. the resorption of BetaBASE MP, takes place according to the general principles for ceramic bone replacement materials.
Physico chemical solubility direct cellular attack.

Figure 2: Microporosity in detail, pores up to approx. 5 μm; sinter necks are discernible.
It is advisable to apply BetaBASE MP in a moist state. The patient's own blood or blood plasma should be used. If neither option is available in sufficient quantities, a sterile isotonic saline solution may be used.
Where defects are larger than approx. 2 cm³ it is advisable to mix BetaBASE MP with spongiosa.
Local administration of antibiotics is possible.
