Abstract:This work has shown that it is possible to produce a bioglass-coated, high-strength, fully dense alumina implant system with a variable surface reactivity. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that this system will bond with bone. These two factors, plus the inherent strength of the dense alumina, make this system an attractive candidate as a new prosthetic material.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
