Low protein intake is associated with impaired titanium implant osseointegration

Published in Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. 2006, vol. 21, no. 2, p. 258-64
Abstract Low protein intake is highly prevalent among orthopaedic elderly patients. We studied the effects of an isocaloric low protein diet on the resistance to pull-out of titanium rods implanted into rats proximal tibia. Isocaloric low protein intake impairs titanium implant osseointegration, with a decreased strength needed to completely loose the implant and altered bone microarchitecture in its vicinity.
