- Introduction Collagraft has been widely used in orthopaedic since 1993 as a bone substitute both alone (osteoconductive) and with autogenous bone marrow (osteoinducive). It is a combination of purified bovine dermal fibrillar collagen with approximately 65% hydroxyapatite and 35% tricalcium phosphate. In this study its use in the management of large odontogenic cysts is reviewed. The cases have a here possibility of pathological fracture in the perioerartive period or delayed healing with bone cavity due to intraoral wound dehiscence occurs. Its use avoids bone harvest operative sites or the use of autograft. Collagraft is presented in strips measuring 45 x 10 x 3 mm and is packaged in boxes of three or six strips. The packaging includes a well for the collection of autologous blood to constitute the strips prior to use. See figure 1. Materials and Method All the patients presented with odontogenic mandibular cyst which when enucleated resulted in significant bone cavities often in edentate areas. The patients were at risk from delayed healing and pathological fracture. All cysts were enucleated under general anaesthesia. Collagraft was used to fill the surgical defect after being hydrated in autologous blood harvested from patient just prior to use. See figure 2. Wound closure by continuous suture using 3/0 Vicyl. Periooperative antibiotics were given a loading dose followed by a five day course. Good oral hygiene was encouraged supported by the use of chlorhexadine mouthwash. See figure 3 for results. Radiographs were obtained preoperatively, one day postoperative and three months postoperative. See figure 4. Conclusion Collagraft is a useful addition to the materials available as a bone substitute in management of bone defects in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery. We have used Collagraft in cases of mandibular odontogenic cyst management. All the patients had a significant cyst cavity which would have been slow to heal if solely enucleated and was considered for bone grafting technique. Collagraft was easy to handle and resulted in good healing with minimal complications. Two cases had small wound dehiscence and extrusion of graft material. The defects healed uneventfully good oral hygiene was maintained and an extended curse of antibiotics was prescribed (Penicillin 250mg one week course).
