    Due to increased life expectancy of humans the number of patients with age related skeletal compliciations has increased. These patients but also patients suffering from complications due to trauma or disease often need surgical interventions in which additional bone is required for optimal recovery. Currently the most frequently used bone replacement is autologous or allogeneic bone, but both methods have their drawbacks.
