Article Preview

Plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite coating on metal substrate was prepared. Two kind of post-treatment methods were been applied to the coating, treatment in air at 650°C for 30 min and treatment in water vapor at 125°C with a pressure of 0.15MPa for 6 hours. XRD showed that the HA nanocrystals increased after water vapor treatment. The interfacial tensile bond strength between HA and substrate was 45.0±1.82MPa, 39.1±1.27MPa and 30.3±1.61MPa for as-received coatings, water vapor treated coatings and heated in air coatings, respectively. 3 months after implantation in dogs limbs, the push-out strength between implants and bone was 11.27±2.71MPa, 11.63±3.11MPa, 23.92± 2.01MPa and 18.8± 1.82MPa for pure Ti implants, as-received coating implants, water vapor treated implants and heated in air implants, respectively. The results showed that the post-water vapor treated HA coating have better mechanical behavior in vitro and in vivo
