Paper Title:
Effect of the Composition in β-TCP-MCPM Bone Cement Containing Dense ß-TCP Granules
  Abstract

Effect of the starting compostion was studied in bone cement containg coarse b-tricalcium phosphate (b-TCP) granules which was very dense and round. With respect to the mixing ratio between b-tricalcium phosphate and monocalcium monophophate (T:M), the properties such as setting time, density and compressive strength were measured. The properties of bone cement prepared from normal powdery b-TCP was strongly dependent on the initial mixing ratio (T:M). Though the compressive strength as well as density was maximum at T:M = 6:4, small departure of compostions from T:M=6:4 resulted in drastic decrease of compresive strength. On the contrary, in the specimens from granular b-TCP, compressive strength was much less deependent on the initial mixing ratio. Range of optimum compressive strength covered from T:M=6:4 to 8:2. Therefore, granular groups provided more degree of freedom to control other properties such as setting time while maintaing its compressive strength.
