The shear strength and the failure mode of plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite coating to bone: the effect of coating thickness.

Abstract

Plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite coated (HAC) 50 and 200 microns thick on Ti-6Al-4V cylinders was transcortically implanted in the femora of canines to evaluate in detail the effect of coating thickness on the pushout shear strength and failure mode examined under scanning electron microscope after the periods of 4, 6, 8, and 12 weeks. The HAC coating… (More)
