Abstract: SummaryTeflon implants containing a single cylindrical pore were surgically embedded in the femural bones of rabbits. A total of eight different pore sizes were used for each experimental animal. Their diameters ranged from 274 to 670 pm, with approximately 50 pm intervals between sizes.

From these data an optimum po…
