The Bone Reaction to Ceramic Coated Pins - Animal Study
The reaction of animal bone to Ti6Al4V pins coated with ceramics of Ca2KNa(PO4)2 or Ca10[K/Na](PO4)7 as main crystalline phases were tested. It is shown that the new materials possess a very high resorption in comparison with hydroxyapatite (HA).
