Process and Fabrication of Calcium Triphosphate and Hydroxylapatite Microspheres for Clinical Application
Clinical applications of Calcium phosphate compounds are done in most cases with powders of Calcium-tri-phosphate and/or Hydroxylapatite to enhance the surgery of orthopaedic repair. The application of microspheres of these compounds has big advantages to faster surgery and higher strength of the bone structure. The special processes to produce microspheres of narrow size distribution and high sphericity out Calcium-tri-phosphate and Hydroxylapatite are described. Properties and composition of these microspheres as calcined and as sintered are given.
