Abstract:

A comparison and evaluation of biodegradable acid copolymers and ceramic both separately and chemically combined was done to determine osteogenic potential in rat tibias. All materials proved to be effective osteogenic agents and were tissue tolerant with a paucity of inflammatory effects. The ceramic - copolymer combine failed to provide additive advantages as had been hoped. Author
