Hydroxyapatite Has Potential as a Femur Fracture Implant
Recently, a research paper was published exploring the use of a material called hydroxyapatite, which might help with bone regeneration. This material may also be used for those who have suffered a femur fracture. If someone suffers a femur fracture, this can lead to a prolonged recovery. Some people might even need an implant to help restore their mobility and function. There are multiple types of implants. The ultimate goal of these implants is to regenerate or replace fractured bone.
