We developed an experimental model to compare the efficacy of free vascularized bone grafts, conventional segmental autografts, matchstick autografts, and fresh segmental allografts in terms of their ability to reconstruct a 7-cm segmental diaphyseal defect created in the canine femur. Forty-five adult mongrel dogs were studied and followed for 6 to 12 months prior to sacrifice. Evaluation included radiologic assessment of graft incorporation and hypertrophy, histology, and biomechanical… CONTINUE READING
