Tissue response to hafnium.

Abstract

The aim of the present experimental study was to evaluate the tissue response to hafnium (Hf) a reactive metal closely related to titanium (Ti) and zirconium (Zr). Hf has not been previously evaluated as implant material in a biologic environment. In a first experiment, 21 machined Hf non-threaded implants (test) and 21 similar Ti implants (control) were… (More)
