Repair of segmental bone defects using bioactive bone cement: comparison with PMMA bone cement.

We developed a bioactive bone cement (BABC) that consists of apatite and wollastonite containing glass ceramic (AW-GC) powder and bisphenol-A-glycidyl dimethacrylate (Bis-GMA) based resin. In the present study, the effectiveness of the BABC for repair of segmental bone defects under load-bearing conditions was examined using a rabbit tibia model… CONTINUE READING
