Fig. 4

Decalcified histological sections stained with hematoxylin-eosin 12 weeks after implantation of β-TCP cylinders (original magnification, × 40). A, B, and C indicate β-TCP cylinders in group A, B, and C, respectively. New bone formation was found in β-TCP cylinders of all groups at 12 weeks. The new bone in group A was thinner than that in group B, and that in group C was thicker than that in group B, assessed qualitatively. The scale bar shows 1 mm
