Secondary bone grafting of alveolar clefts: a densitometric comparison of iliac crest and tibial bone grafts.


OBJECTIVE To evaluate changes in the optical density of secondary alveolar cleft bone grafts obtained from two different donor sites over time and to determine whether one donor site gives a higher recipient bone density than the other. METHODS A prospective study was performed evaluating 40 healthy patients with congenital cleft lip and palate undergoing… (More)
