  1. THANKS again for this information of assisting and helping in regrowth of broken bones might be because of an accident or injury.But here is my one concern that would it be filtered out through natural mechanism of excretion or be sucked out ..the kidney of that particular patient would be strong enough to flush out the degradable plastic.?

    • The scaffolding is made of a biodegradable plastic. It breaks down to H2O, carbon and other basic elements, I don’t think the kidneys would have problems trying to filter it out. 😉
