Paper Title:
Tissue Response in the Femur of Rats After Implantation of Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings on Ti-13Nb-13Zr Produced by Plasma Immersion
  Abstract

Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings were deposited on titanium alloy (Ti-13Nb-13Zr) by plasma immersion process. DLC-coated Ti alloy and uncoated Ti were investigated in an animal model using the femoral condyles of rats for intervals of 4 and 12 weeks postoperatively. The interface between the implants and bones of the femoral condyles were analysed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) by backscattering. The results showed that the DLC coatings were well tolerated in both periods.
