As-cast, porous surfaced CoCr implants were tested for bone interfacial shear strength in a canine transcortical model. Three-dimensional printing (3DP) was used to create complex molds with a dimensional resolution of 175 microm. 3DP is a solid freeform fabrication technique that can generate ceramic pieces by printing binder onto a bed of ceramic powder.(More)
Rat calvarial cell mitogenic behavior was investigated on various biomaterials coated with Matrigel, a basement membrane matrix containing growth factors. Low (20-40%) and high (70-90%) crystallinity hydroxyapatite (rHA and cHA), rough titanium (Ti), and tissue culture polystyrene (TP) surfaces were compared. Surface chemistry and calcium resorption of HA(More)
