Characterization of CaP Coating Deposited on Porous Titanium

Abstract:

Article Preview

Synthetic Hydroxyapatite (HA) has been used as coating in order to enhance biocompatibility of titanium implants. Osseointegration at the implant-bone interface can be positively affected by the presence of HA coating and other biocompatible calcium phosphates (CaP) deposited on titanium implants, due to the high biocompatibility of these bioceramics. The biomimetic process is based on the nucleation and growth of a bioceramic film onto a substrate immersed in a body fluid solution (SBF) and it can be applied to deposit CaP coatings onto metallic substrates. The present work presents results on the characterization by SEM of CaP coating deposited on porous titanium samples by a biomimetic process.
