The objective of this study is to evaluate the osteoconductivity and bioactivity of the Bonelike graft in repairing surgical cystic bone defects. Bonelike is implanted in 11 patients, aged between 24 and 53 years with a mean age of 36 years, consisting of 5 men and 6 women. According to the standard follow up protocols, radiological examinations are performed and Bonelike/bone retrieved samples have been analyzed histologically using non-decalcified sections obtained perpendicular to bone… CONTINUE READING
