Abstract

The performances of hydroxyapatite coated multilayered mesh stem and convention beads-coated stem were compared mechanically and histologically. The hip stems of hydroxyapatite(HA)-coated multilayered mesh and conventional beads were implanted into canine right hips, and animals were killed 3, 6, 10 weeks, and 6, 12 months after implantation. Bone ingrowth was computed from backscattered electron imaging-scanning electron microscopy (BEI-SEM) images of transverse sections. It was observed that the HA-coated multilayered mesh stem provided faster, stronger, and more reliable osseointegration than the conventional bead stem.
