A previous study of coralline hydroxyapatite as a bone-graft substitute was extended from 4 to 12 months to determine better the relationships between implantation time, bone ingrowth and mechanical properties. The model consisted of a 10 x 30 mm window defect in the shaft of the canine radius (a cortical site), and a 10 mm diameter cylindrical defect in the head of the humerus (a cancellous site). In the new study, these two defects were made bilaterally in eight dogs, and filled with block… CONTINUE READING
