Investigation Of The Surface Microstructure Of The Polyamide-Hydroxyapatite And Polyethylene-Hydroxyapatite Bone Implants With Acoustic Microscopy Methods
Polymeric composites are widely used in the restorative surgery for the bone defect replacement. The most significant aspect of implant design is the biological and physico-mechanical compatibility of composite properties with the properties of the replaced tissue. Medical polymeric composites, as a rule, are polycomponent materials with the heterogeneous surface. Since the superficial properties substantially predetermine the success of osteointegration in the interface area, the evaluation of the chemical composition, physical properties and microstructure of the implant surface is of paramount importance.
