In vitro strength comparison of hydroxyapatite cement and polymethylmethacrylate in subchondral defects in caprine femora.

Abstract

Hydroxyapatite cement was investigated in situ for the reconstruction of juxta-articular defects. Polymethylmethacrylate is currently the most commonly used material for the reconstruction of bone defects following the exteriorization and curettage of aggressive benign tumors. In vitro, we compared the effects of hydroxyapatite cement and… (More)
