Mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma enhance bone formation in sinus grafting: a histomorphometric study in minipigs.


OBJECTIVES Autologous, allogenic, and alloplastic materials for sinus augmentation have specific drawbacks, which has stimulated an ongoing search for new materials and tissue-engineering constructs. We investigated whether mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) seeded on a fluorohydroxyapatite (FH) scaffold can improve bone formation… (More)
