Hadjipavlou et al. [11] recently reported excellent results with calcium sulfate-filled titanium cages in an interbody fusion model in adult sheep. These authors obtained roughly equivalent results with cages filled with either autograft iliac crest or with calcium sulfate. There are at present, however, no published reports of the use of calcium sulfate for human spinal fusion. Processed coralline grafts, including hydroxyapatite, have been used extensively for the repair of bone defects. Additionally, these products have been used for spine surgery with a number of different applications.
