The kinetics of growth of bone into control (nontreated) and heat-treated screws made of stainless steel (type 316L) and Ti-6Al-4V, implanted in the medullary canal of the femur in rats, were studied by mechanical, histological, and biochemical methods. A progressive and significant increase in the ingrowth of bone, as reflected by interfacial shear strengths of the screws, was measured with time after implantation. At all time intervals for as long as 35 days after implantation, the shear… CONTINUE READING
