Paper Title:
In Vitro Dynamic Degradation of Strontium-Hydroxyapatite Granules
  Abstract

The knowledge of the degradation process is an important role to understand and predict in vitro results. Granules of strontium-hydroxyapatite (Sr-HA) were submitted to a degradation process under dynamic conditions using a bioreactor system and using a solution with pH=5. The degradation process under dynamic conditions can be represented by a curve in which the calcium content firstly increases (dissolution part) followed by calcium decreasing (reprecipitation). The use of a low pH solution does not affect the curve’s shape but reduces the precipitation step.
