Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 April 2003
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics): 11.040.40
scope:

1.1 This specification covers chemical and crystallographic requirements for hydroxylapatite intended for surgical implants. For a material to be called hydroxylapatite, it must conform to this specification. (See Appendix X1.)

1.2 The biological response to hydroxylapatite in soft tissue and bone has been characterized by a history of clinical use (1-3)┬▓ and by laboratory studies (4-6).

1.3 This specification includes powder, particulate, and forms intended for use as surgical implants, components of surgical implants, or as raw materials for manufacutring processes such as thermal spray coating, electrophoretic deposition, physical vapor deposition, and so forth.

1.4 This specification specifically excludes hydroxylapatite coatings, amorphous calcium phosphate, ceramic-glasses, tribasic calcium phosphate, whitlockite, and alpha- and beta-tricalcium phosphate. (See Specification F 1088.)
