Gravel as a true filter media

A table of media surface area per unit volume in Vol. 1 
of Baensch's Marine Atlas shows that small-grain gravel
has roughly the same surface area of commercial plastic balls
and ceramic cylinders (but much less than sintered glass).
I would like to know if anyone uses gravel in their (canister)
filter in place or, or with, commercial media.
