Abstract: A preliminary investigation has been performed (a) to determine the kinetics of bone ingrowth into porous materials and to determine if this ingrowth could be catalyzed by the presence of a foreign substrate; and (b) to measure the bonding capability of bone with a porous-surfaced metallic implant. Tests on porous-surfaced implants corroborate the work of other investigators in showing that bony tissue will grow into a porous substance that has pores large enough to support tissue nourishment. The shear streng…
