Highly porous zirconia-based ceramics were prepared. The ceramic samples sintered at 1600°C had porosities from 40% to 43%, with pore size ranges as follows: "big pore" 100-220 pm and "small pore" 0.8-8 pm. This makes the ceramic structure to be very similar to the structure of the natural spinal bone. The level of mechanical properties of the synthesized zirconia-based ceramics is determined by the pore sizes. The values of the compressive strength and the effective Young's modulus are very similar to those characteristics of the natural spinal bone.
