Twenty-one porous hydroxyapatite-tricalcium phosphate ceramic cylinders 1.5 cm long and 1.2 cm in diameter were swathed with fresh autogenetic periostea taken from 21 dogs and implanted in the same animals' muscles to get living ceramic bone substitutes. These substitutes contained autogenetic growth stimulators including osteoblasts and other… CONTINUE READING
