Bone Morphogenetic Protein Bone Marrow Bone Defect Bone Graft PERFORMANCE OF MOLDED VASCULARIZED BONE GRAFTS INDUCED BY BMP-2 AND MARROW IN A RAT SEGMENTAL DEFECT MODEL

INTRODUCTION: Previous experiments demonstrated that desired shape and size bone could be generated using silicone molds containing the inferior epigastric bundle with osteoinductive rhBMP-2 and osteogenic bone marrow in vivo. This experiment tests the hypothesis that molded vascularized bone graft is comparable to “gold standard” autogenous bone graft in… CONTINUE READING
