The ready-to-use sticks are soft and easy to apply. Using dry, gloved fingers, OSTENE is easily molded to the desired shape and consistency that provides immediate hemostasis when pressed into bleeding bone.

Additional Product Benefits

Does Not Interfere With Bone Healing*

Preclinical studies on sternal, cranial and tibial animal bone healing show OSTENE facilitates normal osteogenesis while negligible healing is shown with bone wax.2,3,4,6,7


*Preclinical data. Results may not correlate to performance in humans.

Does Not Increase Infection*


OSTENE does not increase infection rates, providing for a good alternative to bone wax when the risk of infection may be a concern.2,4,5,6

Does Not Cause Chronic Inflammation*

In a preclinical model, OSTENE does not cause chronic inflammation, providing for a good alternative to bone wax when the risk of chronic inflammation may be a concern.2,4

OSTENE [Bone Hemostasis Material] Indication

OSTENE Bone Hemostasis Material is indicated for use as a water-soluble implant material and for use in the control of bleeding from bone surfaces. OSTENE Bone Hemostasis should be warmed to desired consistency using aseptic techniques.
