SummaryOsseous reconstruction of the surgically resected mandible has presented, for some time, a considerable surgical problem. This paper presents the results of a series of experimental investigations evaluating the various morphologic and immunologic types of autogenous bone grafts in the reconstruction of the surgically resected mandible. The osteogenic inductive effect of hemopoietic marrow in combination with autogenous cancellous bone is reviewed and examples of this inductive effect are cited. The ap…
