Osteointegration of titanium and hydroxyapatite rough surfaces in healthy and compromised cortical and trabecular bone: in vivo comparative study on young, aged, and estrogen‐deficient sheep
The osteointegration rate of titanium (Ti; TI01) and duplex Ti plus HA (HT01) coating systems with high surface roughness was investigated in healthy, aged, and oestrogen‐deficient sheep. AfterExpand

Physical characterization of different-roughness titanium surfaces, with and without hydroxyapatite coating, and their effect on human osteoblast-like cells.
The aim of this study was to characterize and compare various titanium (Ti) and hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings on Ti6Al4V, in view of their application on noncemented orthopedic implants. TwoExpand

Comparative in vitro study on a ultra-high roughness and dense titanium coating.
A new implant surface has been developed with the purpose of avoiding as much stress shielding as possible, and thus prolong the prosthesis lifespan. The aim of this study was to investigate the inExpand

Comparative in vivo evaluation of porous and dense duplex titanium and hydroxyapatite coating with high roughnesses in different implantation environments.
Ti (PG60) and Ti plus HA (HPG60) dense coatings with ultrahigh roughness (Ra: 74 +/- 8 microm and 53 +/- 18 microm, respectively) were compared to high Ti (Ti60) and Ti plus HA (HT60) high roughenedExpand
