Abstract

The authors suggest an experimental model for the assaying, before implantation, of the tissue reaction that wear particles from artificial joints can cause in the human body. Mice were intraperitoneally injected with biomaterial powders in suspension in saline. The materials used were chromium, chromium oxide, nickel, nickel oxide, aluminum, alumina, alumina-titania, cobalt, molybdenum, titanium, silver, zirconium oxide, iron oxide, and stainless steel. Peritoneal lavage was performed a week after injection. A thorough morphological and quantitative analysis of the cell suspension thus obtained was made both immediately after collection and after a 24 h culture.
