The effectiveness of vertical bone augmentation was evaluated in the cranial bone of 15 rabbits using a block of deproteinized bovine bone plus 10% porcine collagen (DBBB) and a cortico-cancellous human bone block (CHBB) with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in comparison with a guided bone regeneration (GBR) technique. The rabbits were divided into six groups: DBBB alone, DBBB/rhBMP-2, DBBB/membrane, CHBB alone, CHBB/rhBMP-2 and CHBB/membrane groups. After 12 weeks, the… CONTINUE READING
