Abstract

The effect of electrical stimulation upon the direct tensile strength of the interface union between porous calcium aluminate implants and bone plus the amount of bone formation were investigated in the femurs of rabbits. The study indicates there is an increased tensile strength of the interface in proportion to the amount of bone formation into the pores and the amount of electrical stimulation used "in vivo."
