The purpose of this study was to compare the osseointegration of 4 different kinds of bioactive ceramic-coated screws with uncoated screws by biomechanical and histomorphometric analysis. Calcium pyrophosphate (CPP), apatite-wollastonite 1:3 glass ceramic (W3G), apatite-wollastonite 1:1 glass ceramic (WAG) and bioactive CaO-SiO2-B2O3 glass ceramic (CSG)(More)
Intervertebral disc spacers using bioactive ceramics have been used to treat degenerative spinal disease. Tooth-shaped spacers are commonly used to prevent migration, but there is a possibility of fracture when inserted or after insertion. Intervertebral disc spacers with either an isosceles triangle-shaped tooth (T1) or a right triangle-shaped tooth (T2)(More)
To evaluate the possibility of novel CaO-SiO2-B2O3 glass-ceramics (CS10B) as a new bone replacement material, we compared the biodegradation and osteoconduction properties of CS10B, hydroxyapatite (HA), and tricalcium phosphate (TCP). Porous CS10B implants were prepared by the polymer sponge method. L5-6 single-level posterolateral spinal fusions were(More)
Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) requires carriers for clinical effectiveness. In this study, whether porous beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP)-based ceramics are ideal carriers for rhBMP-2 was investigated. Hydroxyapatite (HA), β-TCP, TCP/HA (80 %/20 %), HA with rhBMP-2, TCP with rhBMP-2, and TCP/HA (80 %/20 %) with rhBMP-2 were(More)
The sintering behavior of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP, Ca2P2O7)-doped beta-tricalcium phosphate [TCP, Ca3(PO4)2], prepared by solid state reaction, was investigated in-situ, using dilatometry. Pure beta-TCP undergoes phase transition to alpha-TCP at about 1200 degrees C; hence pure beta-TCP ceramics should be sintered bclow 1200 degrees C. Pure beta-TCP(More)
The noble synthesis method for hydroxyapatite (HAp) nanoparticles was exploited using a fairly simple reaction of Ca(OH)(2) and H(3)PO(4), which does not generate residual harmful anions and consequently does not need an additional washing process. HAp nanoparticles were found to yield from dicalcium phosphate dehydrate (DCPD) as the only intermediate(More)
The sintering behavior, mechanical properties and biocompatibility of magnesia (MgO)-doped HA/TCP biphasic ceramics were studied. Pure HA/TCP ceramics showed poor sinterability due to the phase transformation of beta- to alpha-TCP. MgO-doped HA/TCP ceramics showed high density without any phase transformation of beta-TCP up to 1300 degrees C, for MgO(More)
beta-calcium pyrophosphate has been used as a bone-graft extender. The present study evaluated the toxicity from the subchronic administration of beta-calcium pyrophosphate to male and female Sprague-Dawley rats. Animals were divided into two groups consisting of 10 male and 10 female rats each and fed beta-calcium pyrophosphate extract (30 mg/kg body(More)
BACKGROUND A number of methods for coating implants with bioactive ceramics have been reported to improve osseointegration in bone, but the effects of bioactive ceramic coatings on the osseointegration of cancellous screws are not known. Accordingly, biomechanical and histomorphometric analyses of the bone-screw interface of uncoated cancellous screws and(More)
Hydroxyapatite (HA) is an osteoconductive material used as a bone graft extender and demineralized bone matrix (DBM) has been used as a source of osteoinductive factors. A combination of DBM and HA is expected to create a composite with both osteoconductive and osteoinductive properties. This study examined the effect of a combination of DBM and HA on(More)
