Alan M. Hirahara, MD, (Sacramento, CA) provides a quick overview of the basic scientific data that supports the premise of utilizing a demineralized bone matrix (DBM) as an interpositional graft for Rotator Cuff Repairs. The FlexiGRAFT line of demineralized bone matrices is comprised of 100% bone. They have excellent handling characteristics and wick up bioactive fluids such as platelet rich plasma and bone marrow concentrate. Scientific evidence indicates that the FlexiGRAFT Demineralized Sponge can serve as an osteoconductive scaffold with osteoinductive potential at the bone to tendon junction for rotator cuff repairs, helping to induce a more natural reparative tissue.*
