  • CHAG, that is, porous hydroxyapatite hydrothermally converted from the calcium carbonate exoskeleton of a coral (genus Goniopora), has been shown to be effective as a scaffold for bone ingrowth. The large pores in the material, however, resulted in low compressive strengths. Compressive testing was performed to assess the changes in mechanical properties by coating the internal surfaces of CHAG with DL-PLA. Plugs of CHAG with thick (3:1 chloroform to DL-PLA by weight), medium (10:1), and thin… CONTINUE READING
