Abstract

The effect on fusion process of coraline hydroxyapatite was evaluated and compared with autologous bone graft in an posterior spinal fusion procedure in rabbit model. Results demonstrated that coraline hydroxyapatite and autograft have equivalent effect in enhancing fusion mass formation in posterior spinal fusion. Coraline hydroxyapatite in combination with autogenous bone marrow has superior effect in enhancing fusion mass formation than hydroxyapatite alone or autograft.
