OBJECTIVE An early vascular response for angiogenesis is essential for the normal progression of bone defect healing. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent inducer of angiogenesis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a poly (L,D-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) membrane with VEGF encapsulated into PLGA microspheres on bone… CONTINUE READING
