Implant of Biphasic Ceramic (Tricalcium Phosphate/Hydroxyapatite) in Cystic Cavities After Bone Tumor Curettage: Preliminary Results
In the last decade a wide variety of ceramic bone substitutes have been used in oral surgery. Calcium phosphate and hydroxyapatite have a high degree of biocompatibility with the host tissue, but very few data are available about the possible use of ceramic in filling large cancellous bone defects. In the present study, the authors report a preliminary experiment in the use of tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and hydroxyapatite (HA) as graft substitutes after curettage of benign or low-grade bone tumors.
