Carried out at : "ECOLE NATIONALE VETERINAIRE DE NANTES" (a major veterinary university)
- 3 materials: PEEK- OPTIMA, cpTi F67, BIOPIK®
- 30 rabbits
- Cylindric implants with: 2mm diameter
- 6mm length
- Identical state of surface: polished
- Identical surface treatment
- Studies on fits:SEM,Histology
École Nationale Vétérinaire de Nantes (a major veterinary university)
At 27 days
A dense multilayer of osteoblasts is attached to the surface of BIOPIK®.Histology confirm these findings. Some osteoblasts growth on the material.
For Titanium : At 27 days a disparate and little dense layer of new developed osteoblasts strew the cpTi F67 at the surface. Histology confirm these findings.
For BIOPIK® material : A multi layer of osteoblasts growth all around the BIOPIK® implant. All the areas between BIOPIK® material and the bone are filled.The osteoblasts are growing up on the osteoconductive BIOPIK® material.
