Abstract

Our research is aimed at the development of biodegradable and osteoinductive bone adhesives or coatings for in situ surgical placement on endoprostheses. Such biodegradable templates for bone growth could accelerate or improve the quality of device fixation; they could also replace in some cases the need for conventional fracture stabilization implants. An aspect of interest in this work is the possibility of accelerating bone growth through electrostatic potentials at interfaces within the microstructure of biodegradable composite materials. Experimental composites were formulated in our laboratories using glycogen as a biopolymeric matrix and pulverized calcium phosphate (TCP) as the reinforcing phase (Ca//1//0(PO//4)//6OH//2). TCP particles were the carriers of electrical activity, induced by electric fields in the form of surface polarization.
