Abstract

The research concerning a preventive treatment of osteoporotic femoral neck started in 1990 because the surgical procedure of unstable femoral neck fractures is difficult, after effects frequent and there number will increase in the next decade. The goal is to reinforce the femur with a biomaterial. Natural coral is bioresorbable and biocompatible. It acts as an autologus bone graft in the reconstruction of either cortical or cancellous bone and increases the mechanical resistance. This work shows evidence of newbone formation in osteoporotic unbroken femur thanks to the biomaterial; consequently, there preventive surgical treatment should be taken in consideration.
