Bone morphogenetic proteins have proven to be effective bone inductors in animals and are therefore promising as inductors of bone formation in humans. In the present study we investigated the tissue formed after grafting osteogenic protein 1 on a collagen carrier (OP-1-device) in the human sinus floor elevation procedure. Three patients were grafted with OP-1 device. For comparison 3 groups of 3 patients were included in the study receiving respectively, autogenous bone, human freeze-dried… CONTINUE READING
