Abstract

In this paper, results obtained with hydroxyapatite-coated (Ha-coated) tapered external fixation pins in both animal and clinical studies are reported. Regardless of study design, pin loosening was avoided and pin tract infection minimized. These results were due to the optimal pin osteointegration without fibrous tissue interposition, which was provided by the coating. HA-coated pins are expected to significantly improve external fixation clinical results.
