Title
Mechanically stable implants of synthetic bone mineral by cold isostatic pressing
Abstract

A calcium phosphate phase that is equivalent in composition (carbonate content) and crystallinity (nanocrystals) to the mineral phase of bone was prepared by a continuous precipitation method. The powder was compacted by cold isostatic pressing into desired shapes with high compressive strength (range of 20–50 MPa, depending on the geometry). It is concluded that such implant materials can be prepared with a fine-tuned biodegradability in combination with a high mechanical strength. The high mechanical strength of the objects also permits further mechanical shaping procedures like drilling or cutting.
