Degradation of three types of sintered calcium phosphate ceramic spheres was investigated in vitro at low pH conditions (LPC) and in an in vivo model, that is, injection into a mouse peritoneal cavity. Degradation was observed under both conditions. The rate of degradation depended on the type of ceramic, with beta-TCP degrading faster than HA and HA degrading faster than FA. Degradation was characterized by dissolution of the necks and the formation of cracks and irregularities in the grains… CONTINUE READING
