Abstract
Forty patients with bone defects suffering from tuberculosis benign tumors, traumas, and congenital deformities were treated with porous biphasic cera mics (HA-TCP). The defects were replaced by blocks or granules of HA-TCP fo llowing the removal of pathological foci. In all cases, clinical signs disa ppeared postoperatively, and excellent function was obtained. X-ray films s howed good fusion between host bones and substitutes. No loosening of ceram ic implants or recurrence of the original disease was observed.
