Clinical and Experimental Study of Ceramic Implants
Ceramic has been noted for its biocompatibility and stability in living bodies and has been recently introduced in orthopaedic surgery as a surgical implant. We also have been clinically using an oxidized alumina ceramic since 1976. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss our clinical experience and the mechanical characteristics and biocompatibility of the materials widely used in surgical implants.
