1) A further study that evaluated the bone on growth of the two implantable polymers in a bone defect model in sheep revealed that PEEK-Optima HA Enhanced resulted in approximately 75 percent direct bone apposition as early as four weeks following implantation.
The results showed a dramatic imbalance between bone apposition and reabsorption, marked by an arrest in bone formation without reduced absorption.
HA implant coatings showed an improved bone apposition as compared to uncoated implants in the first several weeks after operation.
Porous HA is brittle and has poor tensile properties, but its mechanical properties improve if bone apposition and ingrowth occur.
Sandborn PM, Cook SD, Spires WP, et al: Tissue response to porous-coated implants lacking initial bone apposition.
roughened porous coating for long-term bone apposition
Presence of collagen around the implant has resulted in overall increase in rate of bone apposition.
18 It is hypothesized that the material participates in the "coupling phenomenon" which is the simultaneous occurrence of bone resorption and bone apposition.
FEA studies which investigate the effect of loading on the peri-implant remodeling of bone cater to the understanding that at a certain minimum threshold of strain energy bone apposition would take place and beneath a lower threshold bone loss would occur due to disuse atrophy.
