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. The amount of bone tissue ingression and it,s spatial distribution was assessed for each pore diameter at weekly intervals over a sixteen-week period by bone labeling with Tetracycline injection. From these data an optimum po…
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.
