Abstract

Monolithic bone intended for implantation is treated in oder to conserve its mechanical strength during dehydration and subsequent packaging and to maintain the strength of the bone during the storage period preceding the rehydration and implantation of the bone. The method of treatment comprises contacting the bone with a mechanical strength-conserving amount of at least one biocompatible mechanical strength-conserving agent, the agent being a liquid organic material which is capable of penetrating and remaining in the bone during its dehydration, packaging and storage, dehydrating the bone containing the mechanical strength-conserving agent and packaging the dehydrated bone.
