Abstract

The block shaped graft of autogeneous bone is commonly used in reconstructive surgery to stabilize an operative procedure. Problems, however, have existed with autogenous bone, such as osseous relapse, infection potential and presence of a donor operative site. A new block concept was constructed, the surface textured hydroxylapatite, ST-HA block. This block consists of a dense core of HA sandwiched between two adjustable scalloped surfaces. The specific aim of this research was to determine the effectiveness of layered ST-HA in interpositional placement, the growth of bone into the textured layer, and the timing of ingrowth, with and without additional cancellous bone.
