Human bone morphogenetic protein-2 use for maxillary reconstruction in cleft lip and palate patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The conventional methods of maxillary alveolar reconstruction in patient with cleft are the periosteoplasty and autologous bone grafting. As an important alternative of bone substitution, there is the recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2). This study compares the rhBMP-2 with periosteoplasty and autologous bone grafting… (More)
