Development and optimisation of calcium phosphate silica-based ceramics for medical applications

Universität Rostock, 2003

Abstract: The demand for biomaterials aimed as bone repair is growing at a rapid rate due to the increase of older population. It is not surprising that major class of biomaterials is represented by calcium phosphate ceramics, for they possess similar composition to the mineral phase of bone. In this work a novel bioceramic containing silica is developed, and its composition, structure, mechanical, thermal, in vitro and in vivo performance is studied. The results reveled fast material degradation and high osteoconductive rate at the implantation site.
