Limited information is available on the mechanical properties of the rapidly remodeling bone that surrounds endosseous implants. Fifteen implant-bone blocks were obtained from the mid-femoral diaphyses of three mature male hounds 12 weeks after placement of the implants. To evaluate the microhardness and cortical anisotropy of bone, the implants were sectioned along their long axes. In this process, the femurs were sectioned transversely. Knoop microhardness measurements (HK) were made with a… CONTINUE READING
