Histomorphometric Studies of Hydroxylapatite-Coated and Uncoated CP Titanium Threaded Implants in Bone

Magnus Gottlander, MD/Tomas Albrektsson, MD, PhD

PMID: 1820308

Threaded hydroxylapatite-coated implants of commercially pure (CP) titanium were inserted in the rabbit tibial metaphysis. Uncoated CP titanium screw implants inserted in the contralateral leg served as controls. After 6 weeks and 1 year postinsertion, the semiloaded implants were histomorphometrically analyzed. While not significant, there was more direct bony contact with the hydroxylapatite-coated implants after 6 weeks of follow-up. One year after insertion, there was significantly more direct bone-to-implant contact with the uncoated CP titanium controls. ( INT ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANT 1991 ;6:399-404.)

Key words: histomorphometry, hydroxylapatite, threaded implants, titanium
