Response of Osteoporotic Bone to the Implantation of Biphasic Calcium Phosphate (BCP) Bioceramics


Article Preview

Osteoporosis is a chronic, metabolic and systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mineral density (BMD) and micro-architectural deterioration, resulting in increased bone fragility and fracture risk. Changes in the mineral structure occur due to aging or because of progressive pathologic processes such as osteoporosis, as well as in both aging and effects of bone diseases.
