Tissue ingrowth into porous-coated orthopedic and dental implants is commonly used as a means to achieve long-term fixation of these prostheses. However, the degree of tissue ingrowth is often inadequate and inconsistent. If the pores of these implants are impregnated with a controlled drug release system delivering relevant growth factors, then it might be possible to stimulate more tissue ingrowth. The present study introduces such a system based on biodegradable polymers and investigates its… CONTINUE READING
