COREX Case Studies
Explore how surgeons are using COREX to harvest cancellous bone graft using a minimally invasive technique.
Discover How Easy it Is To Make Autologous Bone Your First Choice for Bone Graft
A minimally invasive technique combined with COREX addresses the traditional issues that contribute to harvest site morbidity including incision size, soft tissue stripping, and cortical disruption.
Case Study 1: Distal Tibia Harvest

Intraoperative image intensification images demonstrating creation of cortical access window (C) and the COREX device being passed in multiple angles (D, E, F) through the distal tibial metaphyseal bone for harvest.
Case Study 2: Calcaneus Harvest
