Fracture healing involves a complex interaction of many local and systemic regulatory factors. Recently, the presence of several bone morphogenetic proteins and their receptors in the fracture healing process has been described. During the early stages of fracture healing, only a minimum number of primitive cells are expressing bone morphogenetic proteins in the fracture callus. As the process of endochondral ossification proceeds, the presence of bone morphogenetic proteins and their receptors… CONTINUE READING
