    Author(s): Luma M Ibrahim*, Raghdaa K Jassim and Ahmed Al Gabban

    Background: The type of implant material for bone in growth with appropriate biomechanical properties has long been sought as the ideal bone-implant interface. This study aimed to assess the influence of Max phase alloy (Ti2AlC) implant on the new bone in growth and biomechanical (push out bond strength test) and this was in comparison with Ti6Al7Nb and cpTi. Materials and methods: A cylindrical implants were prepared from Maxphase Ti2AlC, Ti6Al7Nb and cpTi with these dimensions (8 3) mm height and diameter respectively. In this study, White, male New Zealand rabbits, weighing (2-2.5 kg), aged (10-12 months) were used for implantation of implant cylinder in femur. Then biomechanical (push out bond strength test) and Histomorphometric analysis was performed after 2 and 6 weeks of post-surgical implantation. Statistical analysis was performed fo.. Read More»
