bioceramic

bioceramic

A biocompatible ceramic composed of calcium and phosphates—e.g., hydroxyapatite or tricalcium phosphate—which is either intended as a permanent replacement, such coating gliding surfaces to reduce wear in prosthetic joints, or as a temporary structure, as in the case of bioresorbable pins, plates and screws.

bioceramic

Orthopedic surgery A calcium phosphate–eg, hydroxyapatite or tricalcium phosphate, used to coat the gliding surfaces of artificial joints and ↓ wear and tear in prosthetic joints. See Total hip replacement, Total knee replacement.
