Hydroxyapatite impregnated bone cement: in vitro and in vivo studies.

Abstract

Hydroxyapatite (HA) particle impregnated polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement was fabricated in order to induce bony tissue ingrowth into the pores left behind by resorption of the HA. The amount of HA was 0%, 10%, and 30% by weight. After mixing the HA with bone cement it was cast in a 4 mm inside diameter glass tube (10 mm long). Each specimen was… (More)
