Abstract

See full text

The invention provides for dispensing a bone substitute material, comprising: an elongated body having an outer wall, a front opening, and a rear opening, with the outer wall defining a longitudinally extending interior space therein. The invention also includes a cover for the front opening having a sealable opening therein to allow substances to pass through the opening. A plunger sized to slide within the longitudinally extending cavity divides the cavity into first and second portions. The plunger preferably has a small opening therein to allow passage of fluids (including gases), from the longitudinally extending interior space without permitting solids to pass therethrough. A detachable handle connects to the plunger for sliding the plunger toward or away from the front opening.
