  Abstract :

Drug eluting medicinal implants is active implants that induce healing effects, in addition to their regular task of support. This impact is accomplished by controlled release of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) into the surrounding tissue. A synthetic biomaterial to be utilized effectively in the body, it ought to have certain properties; biocompatibility, osteoconductivity, capacity to be fabricated into useful shapes effectively, no immunogenic probability and controlled bioresorbability. Henceforth, the development of calcium phosphate particularly with tricalcium phosphate has drawn extensive consideration. At present these ceramic materials are currently recognized as biomaterials that essentially stimulate the mineralogical structure of bone. Clinical achievement of bioceramics has prompted an advance in the quality of life for millions of people. This review gives an outline of continuous endeavors in biomaterials research for orthopedic applications, with real spotlight on bioceramic of tricalcium phosphate (TCP).
