Coral and hydroxyapatite may be used as substitution biomaterials for bone grafts. In this work, we extracted the implants from the femora to study the kinetics of elementary mineral transformation of the osseous substitutes. The use of physical analysis methods such as PIXE (particle-induced X-ray emission) shows that coral and hydroxyapatite, after their implantation in vivo, reach a mineral composition comparable with that of bone. For the first time we have measured the concentration of mineral elements, at different time intervals after implantation, along a cross-section. The distribution according to mineral elements (Ca, P, Sr, Zn, Fe) in the implant, in the receiver site and also at the interface, showed that the kinetics of coral resorption was faster than that of hydroxyapatite; in the same way, the osseous attack was not global but, rather, centripetal.
