This study reports the characterization process and in vivo application of a new block bone graft of α-TCP with silicate in three different percentages in the aim of determining the influence of the silicate. Three groups of cylindrical implants (6 ± 0.01 mm diameter, 8 ± 0.01 mm length) with varying Si composition were studied: A: 3 wt % C(2) S; B: 1.5 wt % C(2) S; C: 100 wt % TCP-0 wt % C(2) S. These were implanted randomly in critical size defects in New Zealand rabbits. X-ray diffraction… CONTINUE READING
