The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the use of high-density polytetrafluorethylene (n-PTFE) membranes to facilitate guided tissue regeneration (GTR) in the rat. The concept of guided tissue regeneration is based on the hypothesis that if the non-osteogenic connective tissue cells are mechanically blocked from entering a bone defect, selective re-population of the defect by osteoblasts will occur. Bilateral through-and-through defects of critical size were created in the mandibular… CONTINUE READING
