Abstract:This investigation assesses the histological, radiographic and mechanical properties of regenerated bone in a unilateral critical-size osteoperiosteal mandibular continuity defect in the rabbit model, following the application of beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) scaffolding and recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 7 (rhBMP-7). The study was carried out on nine cases; in six cases the critical-size defect was filled with rhBMP-7 in the β-TCP scaffolding, and in three cases the β-TCP was used alone. The…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
