ad Gross observation of femoral heads of goats at 16 weeks post-implantation. e The ICRS score for gross observation was used to assess the integration of the scaffold into the joint. fs Histological evaluation of osteogenesis in pTa and chondrogenesis on CM at 16 weeks post-implantation. f Safranine O-Fast Green FCF Stain. g The negative control was generated by replacing the primary antibody with PBS. Immunohistochemistry of collagen II (hk) and collagen I (lo), bar = 100μm. ps Hard tissue slicing and Van Gieson’s Stain at 16 weeks post-implantation, bar = 200μm. t Cartilage newborn was described by Modified O’Driscoll histology score. u New bone formation area in the pores of pTa was measured by ImageJ. Fct fibrillar connective tissue, Bt bone trabecular, pTa porous tantalum, DA defected area, RA repaired area, NA normal area
