Low bone quality, such as induced by osteoporosis, is considered a main factor leading to failure of fracture fixations. Peri-implant bone augmentation has been proposed as a means of reducing failure rates in osteoporotic bone by improving implant stability. The beneficial effects of pharmacological augmentation of bone in the immediate vicinity of the implant have been demonstrated. Yet, a quantitative understanding of the role of peri-implant bone in implant stability is lacking. Therefore… CONTINUE READING
