Repair of critical long bone defects using frozen bone allografts coated with an rhBMP-2-retaining paste.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Massive frozen stocked allogeneic bone grafts are often used to reconstruct large bone defects caused by trauma or tumor resections. However, the long-term failure rate of such massive allografts was reported to be 25% because of infection, fracture, and nonunion. In this study, we evaluated the ability of a recombinant human bone morphogenetic… (More)
