This study investigated the effects of sucralfate and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on fibrovascular ingrowth into porous implant materials. Seven white female New Zealand rabbits underwent bilateral abdominal incisions through which porous orbital spherical or and disc-shaped implants were inserted between their abdominal muscles. Eighty hydroxyapatite (HA) and porous polyethylene (PP) implants, each material of different pore sizes, were implanted. These implants were either uncoated… CONTINUE READING
