Advocates of vascularized bone grafts believe that these grafts should have a decreased time to graft-host union, and that they should be mechanically stronger than conventional (non-vascularized) grafts. The objectives of the present study were to determine the rate and pattern of repair in vascularized autogenous cortical bone grafts, to determine the mechanical strength of the grafts, and to correlate the mechanical strength with the biological repair. Forty-nine adult male mongrel dogs were… CONTINUE READING
