The geometry of an implant surface to best promote osseointegration has been the subject of several experimental studies, with porous beads and woven mesh surfaces being among the options available. Furthermore, it is unlikely that one surface geometry is optimal for all loading conditions. In this paper, a computational method is used to simulate tissue differentiation and osseointegration on a smooth surface, a surface covered with sintered beads (this simulated the experiment (Simmons, C., and Pilliar, R., 2000, Biomechanical Study of Early Tissue Formation Around Bone-Interface Implants: The Effects of Implant Surface Geometry,” Bone Engineering, J. E. Davies, ed., Emsquared, Chap. A, pp. 369–379) and established that the method gives realistic results) and a surface covered by porous tantalum. The computational method assumes differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells in response to fluid flow and shear strain and models cell migration and proliferation as continuum processes. The results of the simulation show a higher rate of bone ingrowth into the surfaces with porous coatings as compared with the smooth surface. It is also shown that a thicker interface does not increase the chance of fixation failure.
