  • Patent number: 5397358
    Abstract: A bone implant is so designed that it consists of a main body, more particularly in the form of a core and unidirectional fibers, said core being surrounded by braided fiber configuration. The braided fiber configuration has an elevated fiber fraction in order to grain the surface of the braided structure. This grained surface aids the coalescent growth of natural bone tissue on the implant. The braided fiber configuration simultaneously serves as a torsion box.
