Title
Biological performance in goats of a porous titanium alloy–biphasic calcium phosphate composite
Abstract

In this study, porous 3D fiber deposition titanium (3DFT) and 3DFT combined with porous biphasic calcium phosphate ceramic (3DFT+BCP) implants, both bare and 1 week cultured with autologous bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs), were implanted intramuscularly and orthotopically in 10 goats. To assess the dynamics of bone formation over time, fluorochrome markers were administered at 3, 6 and 9 weeks and the animals were sacrificed at 12 weeks after implantation. New bone in the implants was investigated by histology and histomorphometry of non-decalcified sections. Intramuscularly, no bone formation was found in any of the 3DFT implants, while a very limited amount of bone was observed in 2 BMSC 3DFT implants. 3DFT+BCP and BMSC 3DFT+BCP implants showed ectopic bone formation, in 8 and 10 animals, respectively. The amount of formed bone was significantly higher in BMSC 3DFT+BCP as compared to 3DFT+BCP implants. Implantation on transverse processes resulted in significantly more bone formation in composite structure as compared to titanium alloy alone, both with and without cells. Unlike intramuscularly, the presence of BMSC did not have a significant effect on the amount of new bone either in metallic or in composite structure. Although the 3DFT is inferior to BCP for bone growth, the reinforcement of the brittle BCP with a 3DFT cage did not negatively influence osteogenesis, osteoinduction and osteoconduction as previously shown for the BCP alone. The positive effect of BMSCs was observed ectopically, while it was not significant orthotopically.
