I saw an article in Popular Science about a new technology. Here is information on it I copied from the page of the company that plans to market it (by 2007).

CTT is the exclusive licensing and commercialization agent for Bone Biomaterial, a flowable, moldable paste that can conform to and interdigitate with the host bone. The superior compressive strength of this new technology allows Bone Biomaterial to be used for both weight and non-weight bearing bones. It forms a solid bone-like structure capable of stabilizing fractured bone within five to 15 minutes. Bone Biomaterial is also useful as a bone substitute, eliminating the need for autologous or allogenic bone grafts. Because it is moldable, it may be used to manufacture resorbable orthopedic hardware such as intermedullary nails, screws and plates. Potential market opportunities for the Bone Biomaterial technology include Human Skeletal Repair, Dental and Veterinary applications.

This would be an amazing help for catastrophic bone injuries in horses! I am going to keep an eye on this!
