Abstract

The identification of strains controlling bone remodeling is critical in preventing bone changes caused by implants or extended space flight. The bonding rates of eight calcium phosphate ceramic coatings (CPC) were compared alone and in conjunction with two agents expected to accelerate bone formation. The CPC particles were attached to uniaxial strain gages implanted in the femora of male hounds and greyhounds. The response of the implanted CPC coated gages were compared to the response of a set of gages attached to the contralateral femur. Undecalcified sections were examined using transmitted light microscopy and ultraviolet light. Backscatter electron imaging of coated bone sections was used to confirm bonding to bone.
