In recent years, the use of ceramic materials in orthopaedics and dentistry is becoming increasingly popular. However, it is important to know their biological and mechanical properties to optimize their use. The aim of this study is to describe a specific method to assess in vivo the effects of chronic release of ceramic materials implanted, in relation also to the type of material, pellets or powders. This was achieved by implanting ceramic powders and pellets, formed by low cohesion grains, in the patellar tendon of 48 New Zealand adult rabbits (24 with powders and 24 with pellets). The motion of the joint allowed easily and progressively the release of grains, detached from surface of the pellets and released to the joint space. Animals were sacrificed at different intervals (1, 3, 6, 12 months). Retrieved knee joints underwent X-Ray, histological and ultrastructural analysis.
