Bonalive® putty is a highly moldable, easy-to-apply bone regeneration technology that naturally stimulates bone formation.

Bonalive® putty is an optimized bone graft substitute for orthopedic, trauma and spine surgery. The putty can be delivered directly to the bone defect without mixing or preparation. 

A bioactive, osteoconductive and osteostimulative* synthetic bone cavity filler, the putty is delivered as a sterile ready-to-use paste, requiring no mixing, moistening or other preparation. It consists of S53P4 bioactive glass in addition to a synthetic binder, i.e. a blend of polyethylene glycols (PEGs) and glycerol.

The putty’s radiodense quality enables post-operative evaluation, allowing surgeons to follow the healing of their patients. Unlike the granules, Bonalive® putty does not inhibit bacterial growth.

Intended use
Filling, reconstruction and regeneration of bone defects

Indications for use
Bony voids and gaps


Medical education


Bonalive® putty should not be applied:

  • In acutely or chronically infected tissues
  • To replace structures that are subject to mechanical stress without proper stabilization
  • In patients with acute traumatic injuries with open external wounds close to the defect, which are likely to become infected
  • In patients that have received or are to receive chemo-therapy or radiation therapy at or near the implant site
  • In patients with known allergy to bioactive glass, PEG and/or glycerol

Possible complications

Complications may include normal post-surgical related symptoms such as tenderness, redness, edema, seroma and hematoma, swelling and fluid collection in the operation area.
