Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The development of hydroxyapatite (HAp) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) bioceramic implants for hard tissue replacement was discussed. HAp/TCP were produced by the solution method from Ca(OH)2and H3PO 4 with a post-treatment in many stages. Powder was calcined at the temperature 800°C, pressed in blocks and sintered at 1150-1200°C. Data obtained in the experiment on rabbits confirmed good biocompatibility of HAp placed on the bone and cartilage surface incorporation in surrounding soft tissues.
