Tetrabone® is a newly developed granular artificial bone. The 1-mm Tetrabone® has a four-legged structure. In this study, the long-term effect of implanting Tetrabone® or β-TCP granules in rabbit femoral cylindrical defects was evaluated. The rabbits were euthanized at 4, 13, and 26 weeks after implantation. Micro-CT was conducted to evaluate the residual… CONTINUE READING
