Polylactide-co-glycolide fiber-reinforced calcium phosphate bone cement.

OBJECTIVE To compare the strength of polylactide-co-glycolide fiber-reinforced calcium phosphate bone cement (FRC) with nonreinforced calcium phosphate bone cement (NRC) subjected to simulated dural pulsations in defects larger than 25 cm(2). METHODS Seven NRC and 7 FRC specimens were set in both medium (37.5 cm(2)) and large (50.0 cm(2)) model skull… CONTINUE READING
