Effect of rhBMP-2 with PLGA/gelatin sponge type (PGS) carrier on alveolar ridge augmentation in dogs.

Abstract

Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 has been shown to promote bone formation because of its osteoinductive property. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of rhBMP-2 delivered on a poly (D, L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) copolymer/gelatin sponge (PGS) in vertical alveolar ridge augmentation on height-reduced edentulous mandible to… (More)
