Novel approach to calvarial bone transport using a rabbit model.

Abstract

Calvarial defects sometimes require cranioplasty to protect the brain. Alloplastic materials, such as acrylic resin, hydroxyapatite ceramics, and titanium, involve various problems, such as vulnerability, infection, deformity resulting from growth, and high cost. We devised a new bone transport model in the rabbit based on the distraction osteogenesis… (More)
