Bone Grafts

Spinal fusion requires the use of bone graft. That bone may be taken from the patient's own body (called autograft), from a cadaver (called allograft), or from an animal (called xenograft). Other than bone grafts, there are some materials which promotes spinal fusion. Main examples are bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) and demineralized bone matrix (DBM).
