Biologically inert expanded polytetrafluorethylene (e-PTFE) membranes (GORE-TEX) have earlier been shown to improve healing of different types of bone defects, to be able to restore earlier existing bone, and to produce bone neogenesis. This study was performed to investigate the influence of membrane porosity on the osteopromotive efficacy and to determine bone neogenesis times in the rat. Three different e-PTFE membrane qualities with different porosities (internodal distances < 8, 20-25 and… CONTINUE READING
