Fraunhofer employs laser in new tricalcium phosphate rapid bone replacement method

By / June 25, 2010

Researchers at Fraunhofer’s Institute for Laser Technology say they are getting excellent results from a bone replacement system that uses a paste of polyactide (PLA) and tricalcium phosphate that is melted by a fine laser to build up layers of material that can provide a strong and precise fit. This new approach was developed under…
