Porous hydroxyapatite (HA) is a calcium-phosphate-based material that is biocompatible, nonimmunological, and osteoconductive, and has a macroporosity of about 200 to 800 microm. The pores seem to be able to induce migration, adhesion, and proliferation of osteoblasts inside the pore network and to promote angiogenesis inside the pore system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical behavior and the histological and ultrastructural aspects of porous HA in maxillary sinus augmentation… CONTINUE READING
