The fabrication of calcium phosphate ceramics with porous configuration as synthetic bone graft was discussed. In the study, Hydroxyapatite/Tricalcium phosphate (HA/TCP) bioceramics were fabricated by a technique involving vacuum impregnation of reticulated polymer foams with ceramic slip. It was found that using a slip with appropriate viscosity, porous HA/TCP bioceramics having interconnecting pores and a range of pore size can be produced. The technique can be extended to produce a range of bone substitute materials with properties tailored to specific clinical applications.
