The study evaluates the ability of osteoprogenitors treated with platelet-derived growth factor BB (PDGF-BB) delivered on vinyl styrene microbeads (VSM) to regenerate rat calvarial critical-size defects (CSDs). Fetal rat calvarial cells were cultured and tested for their ability to attach to VSM using scanning electron microscopy. Twenty-five rats were(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the use of the nonresorbable vinyl styrene microbeads (VSM) alloplast as a delivery vehicle for platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF-BB) in rat calvarial critical size defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-three Long-Evans male rats were divided into 4 groups; a negative control, vinyl styrene(More)
