Enhanced bone formation by strontium modified calcium sulfate hemihydrate in ovariectomized rat critical-size calvarial defects.


PMID 28580902

Abstract

The development of a new generation of biomaterials with high osteogenic ability for treatment of osteoporotic fractures is being intensively investigated. The objective of this paper was to investigate new bone formation in an ovariectomized rat (OVX rat) calvarial model of critical size bone defects filled with Sr-containing α-calcium sulfate hemihydrate (SrCSH) cement compared to an α-calcium sulfate hemihydrate (α-CSH) cement and empty defect. X-ray diffraction analysis verified the partial substitution of Sr
