Abstract

In order to study the early cellular response in the fluid phase found close to implants in soft tissues, an experimental method using a hollow implant was developed. The fluid present in an interior chamber communicating with the exterior of the implant was analysed. Polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMNGs) were predominant during the study (1-9 days). In titanium implants a slight increase in cell numbers with time was noted, whereas in polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) implants, a sharp increase in cell numbers was observed. Preliminary studies showed that sufficient amounts of fluid and cells could be retrieved for analysis of protein composition and inflammatory cell activation.
