This study was designed to investigate the osteoconductivity and bioresorption of brushite calcium phosphate cement (CPC) in bone-tendon interface healing after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Surgical reconstruction using grafted tendon in bone tunnel was performed bilaterally in 28 skeletal mature rabbits. Brushite CPC was implanted between grafted tendon and bone tunnel of one limb with the contralateral one as the control. A batch of 14 rabbits was sacrificed at 6 and 12… CONTINUE READING
