Evaluation of osteogenic/chondrogenic cellular proliferation and differentiation in the xenogeneic periosteal graft.

Abstract

To determine whether grafted young periosteum can induce new bone formation in elderly patients, this preliminary study evaluated cell proliferation and differentiation in xenogeneic periosteal grafts in old rats radiographically, histologically, and immunohistochemically. Periosteum harvested from the tibia of young Japanese white rabbits were grafted into… (More)
