Porous HA ceramic for bone replacement: role of the pores and interconnections - experimental study in the rabbit.

Hydroxyapatite (HA) porous ceramics are increasingly used in biomedical applications. Their physical characteristics, such as porous volume, require perfect control of the pore shape, as well as the number and the size of their interconnections. The aim of our study was to evaluate a new HA ceramic using polymethylmethacrylate microbeads (PMMA) as the… CONTINUE READING
