This pilot study investigated the biomechanical properties of prefabricated, vascularized bioartificial bone grafts, which may provide an alternative bone source for the restoration of segmental osseous defects. Vascularized bioartificial bone grafts comprise an artificial customized scaffold made of beta-tricalcium phosphate. Bone formation along the… CONTINUE READING
