We implanted artificially synthesized hydroxyapatite (a-HA) spheres into the orbits of sixteen rabbits after enucleation. The spheres were removed 1, 2, 3, and 6 months after implantation and examined by light and scanning electron microscopy. Tissue breakdown and exposure of a-HA implants were not observed in any case. As time passed, fibrovascular tissue… CONTINUE READING
