STUDY DESIGN A new mineralized collagen matrix combined with or without growth factor was used for the posterolateral spinal fusion in the rabbit lumbar spine. OBJECTIVES The availability of a new osteoconductive matrix with or without recombinant osteoinductive growth factors offers a possible alternative to the use of autogenous bone for grafting indications. This study evaluated the bone-forming activity of the biomimetic matrix: nano-hydroxyapatite/collagen/polylactic acid (nHAC/PLA… CONTINUE READING
