Abstract: Porous, cylindrical, high alumina, ceramic structures were fabricated for implantation in the superior third of canine femoral medullary canals. Implant durations of one, two, four, and eight weeks using three animals per time period were studied. A constant current (10 muA) power supply was used to attempt to stimulate bone growth into the porous ceramic structures. Osseous tissue in-growth was evaluated using a mechanical push-out test, microadiography, and histological thin sectioning. The interfacial shear…
