Mandibular reconstruction in the rabbit using beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) scaffolding and recombinant bone morphogenetic protein 7 (rhBMP-7) - histological, radiographic and mechanical evaluations.

Abstract

This investigation assesses the histological, radiographic and mechanical properties of regenerated bone in a unilateral critical-size osteoperiosteal mandibular continuity defect in the rabbit model, following the application of beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) scaffolding and recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 7 (rhBMP-7). The study was carried… (More)
