The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effect of different diameters of cylindrical titanium channels on human osteoblasts. Titanium samples having continuous drill channels with diameters of 300, 400, 500, 600, and 1000 microm were put into osteoblast cell cultures that were isolated from 12 adult human trauma patients. Cell migration into the drill channels was investigated by transmitted-light microscopy. The DNA content in the drill channels was measured photometrically… CONTINUE READING
