A bone cyst is a circular area of demineralization in the bone. This pathology, frequent in young horses, may lead to lameness and has therefore harmful consequences for the performance of sports horses. The treatment consists of surgery to debride the cyst, associated with filling the hole with a bone graft to improve tissue regeneration. The surgical procedure can be combined with drugs to reduce the pain.
In this indication, BIOCERA-VET* also offers an alternative of choice to bone tissue graft by combining the availability of the material without additional surgery, pain relief and bone regeneration properties.
*currently available for the European market only.
