OBJECTIVES The aim of this pre-clinical study was to evaluate the biological performance of two injectable calcium phosphate cement (CPC) composite materials containing poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic)acid (PLGA) microspheres with different properties in a maxillary sinus floor elevation model in sheep. MATERIALS AND METHODS PLGA microspheres were made of either low molecular weight (~17 kDa) acid-terminated PLGA (PLGA(L-AT) ) or high molecular weight (~44 kDa) end-capped PLGA (PLGA(H-EC) ) and… CONTINUE READING
