Title: Layered Approach May Yield Stronger, More Successful Bone Implants
Description: Schematic of cortical and cancellous bone, showing a cavity partially filled with a macroporous CPC paste, followed by a strong CPC paste. Macropores in the first layer allow bone cells to infuse, while the strong layer provides the needed early strength for the implant's survival. Once the new bone strengthens the implant, fibers in the strong layer dissolve to create macroporous channels for additional infusion of bone cells.
