Abstract

Calcined bone blocks made by heating raw bovine bone at 1200 degrees C were implanted into defects in canine femoral condyles. X-ray diffraction patterns showed that the calcined bone was well-crystallized hydroxyapatite. Rapid, good new bone growth was observed around the calcined bone which was gradually absorbed along its surface and also by the Haversian canals.
