|Abstract||Segmental bone defects caused by tumor resections, trauma, and skeletal abnormalities such as osteomyelitis remain a major problem in orthopedics because of the lack of predictability in attaining functional bone after the treatment. The objective of this study was to propose an indigenous porous biodegradable triphasic ceramic (calcium silicate, tricalcium phosphate, and hydroxyapatite [HA])-coated HA (core) (HASi) for the repair of such segmental defects. With respect to the synthesis of HASi, HA blocks were prepared by wet precipitation, dipped in silica sol (sol gel method), sintered at 1200 degrees C, polished in the form of hollow cylinder (2 cm long with an outer and inner diameter of 2 cm and 7 mm, respectively), and implanted into a 2-cm segmental defect created in the goat femur diaphysis. This study prolonged for 12 uneventful months and thereafter neo-osteogenesis in par with material degradation was analyzed through radiography, histology, histomorphometry, scanning electron microscope (SEM)-energy dispersive spectrum, micro-computed tomography, and inductively coupled plasma spectrometry. HASi proved to be osteoconductive, osteointegrative, and degradative in nature, without the intervention of fibrous tissue formation at the defect site. Histologically, the newly formed bone reorganized, mineralized, and attained the appearance and contour of the original femoral diaphysis in 1 year. The interconnected porous structure with silica composition aided progressive bone regeneration and repair in par with degradation of the material. Thus the study proposed the possibility of using HASi as a suitable material in clinical orthopedic reconstructive surgery, which remains a formidable challenge.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
