The use of conventional standardized bone fillers for clinical surgery of large bone defect repair is time-consuming and increases the complexity of the surgery, which can easily lead to medical risks.This design meets the clinical needs of bone defect repair with two types of filling methods: a two-syringe mixing pump and flexible hydration-curing bone regeneration material.This design is a moldable bone filling material that can be used for minimally invasive surgery and complex structural bone defects to promote bone cell and blood vessel growth. Collagen gel/TTCP/MCPM/ and growth factor materials are mixed in the cavity and then combined with innovative instruments to fill the bone defect directly. It can be used clinically for all types of bone defects, eliminating the tedious surgical procedures and the psychological stress of the medical staff. Surgical procedures can be shortened and risks reduced during the COVID-19 epidemic, making them easier and safer to perform.
