Comparison of in vivo bioactivity and compressive strength of a novel superporous hydroxyapatite with beta-tricalcium phosphates

Abstract

Superporous hydroxyapatite (HAp-S) is a novel bone substitute that contains three-dimensionally interconnected macropores with micropores, which stimulate bone ingrowth into the material. We investigated the in vivo behaviour of HAp-S by comparing its bioactivity and biomechanical properties with beta-tricalcium phosphates (β-TCP). HAp-S or β-TCP was… (More)
