Abstract

The bone‐implant interface formed in a canine distal femur was examined by means of a Raman microprobe using an implant model designed to test calcium phosphate surface coatings. By using the 960 cm−1 band of calcium phosphate to characterize the interface and adjacent mineral, we obtained spatial and compositional information about the attachment of bone to the synthetic calcium phosphate coating on a titanium support. The interface between bone and the synthetic calcium phosphate is approximately 30–40 μm in width. © 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
