The purpose of this study was to evaluate histologically and biomechanically the interface between porous hydroxyapatite ceramics and a tendon grafted into ceramics, and to compare the interface in two ceramics with different porous structures: interconnected porous calcium hydroxyapatite ceramics (IP-CHA) with an effective porosity index (interpore diameter > 20 microm) of 63.6%, and porous calcium hydroxyapatite ceramics with less interconnection (HA-L) with an effective porosity index of 5.5… CONTINUE READING
