Paper Title:
Correlation between Structural Properties and In Vivo Biocompatibility of Alumina/Zirconia Bioceramics
  Abstract

The aim of our study is the characterization and comparison of structural properties of two novel alumina/zirconia ceramics prepared by Spark Plasma Sintering and biocompatibility evaluation by using an animal model (Wistar rats). SEM, XRD and FTIR spectroscopic results are reported for structural characteristics. In vivo tests demonstrated the biocompatibility and osseointegration of the composites by complementary SEM and histological analysis of the defects in rat femur respectively the connective tissue.
