Prefabrication of vascularized bone graft using an interconnected porous calcium hydroxyapatite ceramic in presence of vascular endothelial growth factor and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells: Experimental study in rats

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this experimental pilot study was to create a prefabricated vascularized bone graft using interconnected porous calcium hydroxyapatite ceramic (PCHC) block by combining vascular bundle implantation, rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and administration of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in a rat model.
