Bone grafts are widely used during surgery in many fields in order to repair bone defects. During surgery, it is very common that small particles of bone graft scatter around the soft tissue. Every fragment has to be picked up and reinserted into the desired area. The aim of this work is to show a useful technical tip in order to avoid bone graft scattered in an undesired area. The bone graft particles are mixed with patient blood forming a gel-like mass containing all fragments together. This technical tip avoids time loss in picking up all fragments that scattered around soft tissue during surgery.
