Recently, I was part of a research team which evaluated the effectiveness of CTG (Calcium Triglyceride) as an osteo-integrating bone adhesive.

I presented the findings at the AAOS (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) conference in San Francisco, which is the largest annual orthopaedic meeting in the world.   You can read the two abstracts that summarize this research by clicking on the links below.
