Potential use of craniosynostotic osteoprogenitors and bioactive scaffolds for bone engineering.

Abstract

The cranial bone has a very limited regenerative capability. Patients with craniosynostosis (the premature fusion of cranial sutures, leading to skull abnormalities) often require extensive craniofacial reconstruction and repeated surgery. The possibility of grafting autologous osteoprogenitor cells seeded on bioabsorbable matrices is of great potential for… (More)
