INTRODUCTION Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is a form of in vivo tissue engineering during which an osteotomy and controlled distraction are used to lengthen bone. The molecular signals that govern distraction-induced bone formation have not been fully elucidated. Specifically, the role of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) in DO of the mandible remains… CONTINUE READING
