Implanted octacalcium phosphate is more resorbable than beta-tricalcium phosphate and hydroxyapatite.

Abstract

Our previous studies have suggested that synthetic octacalcium phosphate (OCP) could be resorbed and replaced by newly formed bone if implanted in rat skull defects. We hypothesized that the implanted OCP is more resorbable than other commonly used bone graft substitutes of calcium phosphate compounds, such as hydroxyapatite (HA) and beta-tricalcium… (More)
