The paper reports on the structural morphology of the interface in vivo between a porous glass ceramic (A3) belonging to the system SiO2 – CaO
– MgO – K2O – Na2O – P2O2 and the surrounding bone in rat tibias.
The interfaces formed after 6, 8 and 12 weeks of implantation were examined by analytical scanning and high-resolution transmission electron
microscopy, up to the lattice plane resolution level.
