In this newly published paper, Ossiform has compared its 3D printed P3D Bone implant with an off-the-shelf b-TCP implant. The implants were inserted in the mandible ramus of pigs, and after six months, resorption and remodeling were evaluated using CT-scans and histological images.
After six months, the P3D Bone implants were almost completely resorbed and replaced by vascularized compact bone, allowing osteointegration to occur. The histological image in the upper right corner shows the partially resorbed P3D Bone implant only three months after implantation.
The full results supported by histology and CT data are published in Bone, Volume 159, June 2022.
