Hydroxyapatite ceramics have been used as bone implants in a number of experimental systems and clinical applications. We have developed a unique experimental model that allows study of the interface between bone and implant materials. A comparison of titanium and hydroxyapatite materials, using this model, has demonstrated the oesteoconductive nature of hydroxyapatite and its ability to bond directly to bone.
