Role of BMP, betaig-h3, and chitosan in early bony consolidation in distraction osteogenesis in a dog model.

Abstract

The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP), transforming growth factor beta-induced gene h3 (betaig-h3), and chitosan on early bony consolidation in distraction osteogenesis in a dog model. Sixteen dogs were used for this study. The lateral surface of the mandibular body was exposed in the subperiosteal… (More)
