The effect of pore forming agent particle size on the porosity, microstructure and in vitro studies of hydroxyapatite ceramics
The synthetic biodegradable polymer/ interconnected-porous calcium hydroxyapatite ceramics
(IP-CHA) composite is an excellent combination carrier/scaffold delivery system for recombinant bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2), that strongly promotes the clinical effects of rhBMP-2 in bone tissue regeneration (67).
Recent trends discussed with in the medical ceramics research report include the shift towards piezoelectric devices; the planned doubling of capacity at Sunrock Ceramics, and discussion of the use of novel hydroxyapatite ceramics
to treat complex fractures, amongst others.
