Introduction: The potential of Bone Morphogenic Protein (BMP) to improve fracture healing is of great interest to orthopaedic surgeons. Although the complex mechanisms leading from the presence of local BMP to the fracture scenario has yet to be elucidated. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether introducing rhBMP-2 to the fracture arena, some days after fixation could be more beneficial to fracture repair. Methods: 40 animals were randomised into 4 groups; namely control treatment… CONTINUE READING
