More about ViBone Moldable
ViBone Moldable, provided by Aziyo Biologics, Inc.

It contains cancellous bone particles as well as demineralized cortical bone fibers and particles, delivering the necessary components for bone formation along with excellent handling and cohesive properties. “The moldable and cohesive handling properties of ViBone Moldable are excellent,” said Dr. Crowl and added, “with this, I am able to pack the disc space more densely compared to the other available bone graft options which increases my confidence that the interbody space is well packed and primed for fusion.”
