Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate the osteointegration of HA-coated and uncoated titanium screws in the cortical bone of long-term (24 months) ovariectomized sheep (OVX group) compared to sham-aged sheep (Control group). At 12 weeks after implantation, the screws were tested biomechanically (extraction torque) and histomorphometrically (affinity index: AI) in both femoral and tibial diaphyses. Cancellous bone status was assessed by iliac crest biopsy. BMD of the L5 vertebra and a histomorphological study of the femoral and tibial shafts were performed to acquire data on cortical bone. A significant difference was found between the OVX and Control groups for BMD (p
