UNLABELLED Femoral intramedullary implants were constructed by threading 4.0-millimeter-thick disks with a titanium-alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) porous bead coating onto a two-millimeter-diameter threaded rod. Each porous-coated disk, which was 6.0, 8.0, 9.0, or 10.0 millimeters in diameter, was separated by a two-millimeter-thick acrylic disk with a diameter of ten millimeters. Implants with and without a hydroxyapatite coating of twenty-five micrometers were inserted into fifteen skeletally mature adult… CONTINUE READING
