Bone response to hydroxyapatite-coated and commercially pure titanium implants in the human arthritic knee.

Abstract

Rough and smooth commercially pure (c.p.) titanium implants and hydroxyapatite-coated (HA-C) implants were inserted in arthritic human knees and left in situ in order to compare the response of bone to these three implants. Radiographic examination alone could not determine if bone apposition had occurred. After 3 and 6 months, histomorphometric analyses of… (More)
