The purpose of this animal study was to determine which ratio of hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) is the most appropriate in the composition of alloplastic biphasic block grafts, in terms of bone density and bone formation, for the regeneration of alveolar defects. Different concentrations of HA/TCP were used for the alloplastic block grafts: 100/0 (HA100 group), 79/21 (HA75 group), and 57/43 (HA50 group); the control treatment filled the defect with a collagen plug. All control and test sites were covered with a resorbable collagen membrane. Sacrifices were performed at 4, 12, and 24 weeks after grafting. Microcomputed tomography and histologic and histomorphometric analyses were performed to determine bone density and the characteristics of the regenerated bone as well as the percentages of newly formed bone (NB), residual material (RM), and connective tissue (CT). Bone density increased significantly over time (P < .001), with stabilization between 12 and 24 weeks (P = 1.000). No differences in density were observed between the different test blocks (P = .813). The percentage of NB increases over time, independent of the concentration (P < .001). At 12 weeks, the control group exhibited more NB than the HA100 group (P < .001). At 24 weeks, the HA50 group exhibited more NB than the HA100 (P < .001) and control (P = .066) groups. At 24 weeks, the HA100 and HA75 groups showed high RM percentages. The HA50 group exhibited an increased tendency of less RM percentage compared with the HA100 and HA75 groups. Although slight differences were found, the HA50 group's HA/TCP ratio seems the appropriate concentration when taking into account the bone density and percentage of NB and RM at 12 and 24 weeks of healing.

Background: The use of Enamel Matrix Derivative (EMD) when dealing with non-contained defects may be limited, as EMD does not maintain a space itself. It has been proposed the use of combi...
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.
Synthetic or natural materials for the replacement of bones or bone tissue. They include hard tissue replacement polymers, natural coral, hydroxyapatite, beta-tricalcium phosphate, and various other biomaterials. The bone substitutes as inert materials can be incorporated into surrounding tissue or gradually replaced by original tissue.
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
A rare aggressive variant of chondrosarcoma, characterized by a biphasic histologic pattern of small compact cells intermixed with islands of cartilaginous matrix. Mesenchymal chondrosarcomas have a predilection for flat bones; long tubular bones are rarely affected. They tend to occur in the younger age group and are highly metastatic.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
