Title : Temporary implant in the metacarpal bone of sheep : Comparative study of stainless steel 316 L treated by sandblasting or coated with alumin
Authors : R. SOUZA FILHO, D. FAU et J. BEJUI
Summary : The behaviour of sheep metacarpal bone facing two types of stainless steel implants has been studied: stainless steel 316 L made rough by sandblasting or coated by alumin by plasma process. Twelve nails of each type have been implanted in medullar cavities of fractured metacarpal bones. Samples gathered at 90 days (6 animals) or 180 days (6 animals) were analysed. The functional or X-ray examinations, the bone regrowth around the implants (as judged by optical microscopy and micro-radiography) did not show any significant differences between the two temporary implants types.
