Experimental usage of hydroxyapatite preadsorption with fibronectin to increase permanent stability and longevity of spinal implants.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Hydroxyapatite has been used in orthopaedic and particularly in spinal surgery by precoating implants to indirectly increase osteoblasts' adhesion and subsequently their stability and longevity. Fibronectin preadsorption synergistically with appropriately constructed hydroxyapatite's surface texture to enhance osteoblasts' adhesion has not been… (More)
